Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crimes (CTTC) Unit Chief Monirul Islam said in a press briefing at DMP Media Centre on Wednesday that police had arrested Md Helal Uddin, 38, allegedly the mastermind of Banani killing mission.
"Helal was the main planner. He also supplied
 the arms used in the murder", said Monirul Islam.
Earlier, Detective Branch (DB) of Police nabbed Helal from Kalachandpur area of Gulshan on Tuesday. They also recovered five firearms from his possession during the drive.
Helal is believed to have link with the student wing of BNP, he added.

"Helal and another were waiting outside during the killing. Four persons were seen to crime commit on CCTV. We have identified two killers as Pichhi Alamin and Saddam," they said.
