JMB 'commander' Asad on 5-day remand

Ten persons out of 12 arrested earlier in connections with the December 17 recovery of bombs, explosives and bomb-making materials from two JMB dens at Akua in the town were produced before a First Class Magistrate court here yesterday.

They are JMB 'area commander' Asaduzzaman; Hafez Saidur Rahman; Sayeeda Noor, her daughter Shamima Akhtar and son Shafiqur Rahman; Zeson Khan, Hamman Khan, Rubel Alam, Delwar Hossain and Abu Sayeed before the court today.

Police sought ten days' remand for Asaduzzaman and Hafez Saidur Rahman but the court granted eight days' remand.

The other arrestees were sent to jail hajat.

Another arrestee, Khorshed Uddin Ahmed, could not be produced before court as he is undergoing treatment at Mymensingh Medical College Hospital (MMCH). He will be produced before the court after his recovery, court sources said.
