The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) is conducting a weapons raid in Satchhari National Park of Chunarughat Upazila in Habiganj.
Md. Moniruzzaman, Additional Superintendent of Police and spokesperson of RAB-9, said the raid began on Friday evening after weapons were found.
But he could not immediately tell the total number of seized weapons. Additional details would be available at a press conference on Saturday, Moniruzzaman said.
Earlier, RAB had conducted six weapons raids in Satchari and recovered mortar shells, rocket launchers, machine guns and numerous explosives from the park, which borders the Indian state of Tripura.
During one of the raids, a bunker was discovered in the hills in the area. RAB officials said the weapons may have belonged to an Indian separatist group.
