Staff Reporter :
Police have succeeded in tracing the Neo JMB recruiter Mahbubur Rahman Selim, a wanted militant, who has long been in Chittagong Central Jail under the name Mahbubur Rahman Khokon.
The militant suicide squad recruiter, Mahbubur Rahman Selim, was arrested in a robbery case on October 5, 2015, said our local correspondent quoting police. Banaz Kumar Majumder, Deputy Inspector General and Chief Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), said, "We have succeeded in tracing Selim, who is in Chittagong Central Jail under the name Khokon."
The PBI Chittagong unit will appeal before the court to take Selim in fresh remand so that more information about Neo JMB's finances and organisational structure can be collected, the police official said.
Selim is an associate of influential Neo JMB leader and bomb expert Lokman Ali alias Sohel Rana, who blew himself up along with his wife and five kids at Nasirpur in Moulvibazar during 'Operation Hit Back' on March 30, Banaz Kumar said.
According to the PBI, Selim was arrested on October 5, 2015 in a case for his part in a robbery and murder at the Shah Corporation in Chittagong that took place on September 24 the same year.
The law enforcement agencies have been haunting across the country for this notorious militant, who is suspected to be the recruiter for Neo JMB's suicide squad.
While Selim was primarily in charge of recruitment for the militant outfit's suicide brigade, Sohel Rana trained the recruits in a clay house situated in the remote hills of Baishari's Lombabil Khorolia Mor area of Bandarban, said police sources.
They added that militants arrested or killed at the recent raids in Ashkona, Sitakunda, Sylhet, Comilla and Moulvibazaar were all recruited by Selim and trained by Sohel.
