Photo: Hasan RajaSohel Mahfuz, arrested along with three other suspected members of militant group ‘Neo-JMB’ from Chapainawabganj, was the founder ameer of JMB in India, reports UNB. Chief of the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Monirul Islam said this on Saturday. “Sohel Mahfuz had been known as an identified militant before the attack on Holey Artisan Café and Bakery. He was a founder member of the ‘Sura Committee’ of the banned Islamic outfit JMB,” Monirul said. He was briefing newsmen at DMP Media Centre after Sohel Mahfuz was brought to Dhaka from Chapainawabganj on Saturday afternoon.Acting on a tip-off, a joint team comprising CTTC, Lawful Interception Cell (LIC) of Police Headquarters, and the Chapainawabganj and Bogra district police jointly carried out an operation at Pushkoronir Par of Chowdhala in Shibganj upazila under Chapainawabganj district early Saturday and arrested Sohel Mahfuz along with three other suspected militants — Hafiz, Jamal and Jewel.The CTTC had been hunting for Mahfuz as he was said to be one of the masterminds of the terror attack on Gulshan Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka last year that left 20 hostages and two senior police officers dead. Sohel is also the northern region commander of Neo-JMB, an ultra-radical offshoot of Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB).The three other arrested militants are Hafizur Rahman alias Hasan, Mostafa Kamal alias Jamal and Jewel alias Ismail.The CTTC chief said they have already found involvement of Sohel Mahfuz alias Abdus Sabur alias Hatkata Mahfuz alias Nasrullah in the Kallyanpur Militant’s den and Holey Artisan Café incidents. Monirul Islam, also additional commissioner of the DMP, said Sohel Mahfuz fled to India in 2006. He along with other fleeing JMB leaders from Bangladesh established JMB unit there. Mahfuz was the founder ameer of JMB India and he had served as the ameer there till 2014, the CTTC chief said.Though he had perpetrated a number of operations in Bangladesh, he was never arrested. He had been staying in India to escape the arrest. Indian police put a Rs 10 lakh bounty on his head because of his involvement in militant activities there, Monirul Islam said.The CTTC chief said Sohel came to Bangladesh after formation of the ‘Neo-JMB’ here and joined the revived militant group as the ‘Neo-JMB’ leader requested him for it. Later, he played an important role to prepare planning of the attack on the Holey Artisan restaurant, the CTTC chief said. “We will interrogate him to verify information, which was gathered earlier during investigations into the Gulshan restaurant attack case. We will also try to find out other new information from him during interrogation regarding Holey Artisan café attack,” Monirul said. “We have been looking for five absconding militants in connection with the Gulshan cafe attack. Among them, he is one of the three most wanted accused in the case,” he also said.last_img

Between the worlds of romance and dreams

first_imgThe works of artist Suhas Roy, in his exhibition titled, Simply Suhas will be on display from 18 December.All the elements in his works ensure that his richly romantic subjects do not touch extreme syrupy and stereotypical portrayals. Instead, their very patent beauty veers towards melancholic grace and elegance. This graceful portrayal of his subjects has much to do with his choice of materials – crayons, charcoal and brush. Art works are usually inspired by life around him, but his themes are as much influenced by the everyday world as they are rooted in fantasy. The vast and complex texture of life is seen as mystical and dark in his work. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The mystical flavour of his works arose from his interpretations of the ‘unknown’. Revealing his philosophy, the artist said ‘I want to prove that the business of art is simple’. Roy has proved that it is not necessary to fret and fume or deliver profound sermons. Success can come from delicate little strokes, small but honest commitments and simple joys. A fine blend of beauty and simplicity remain the hallmark of Suhas Roy’s work. His subjects are romanticised, inhabiting the dreamlike world between sensuality and innocence. This show will bring to the viewer, a rare combination of lasting beauty and nuanced depth-never compromising one for the other.When: 18th December, 10 am onwardsWhere: Open Palm Court Gallery, India Habitat Centrelast_img read more
