MNA Editorial Desk: Sylhet police and Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit on Tuesday said that JMB leader Mainul Islam Musa and Marzina Begum are believed to be among the four militants killed in the Operation Twilight on the militant den in Sylhet city’s Shibbari area.
“The police and the intelligence agencies are trying to confirm their (militants’) identities by matching their finger prints,” Director of Military Intelligence Brigadier General Fakhrul Ahsan said.
Police claimed that they identified Musa with the picture he showed while renting out the house. DNA samples and other evidences will be collected from the body to be sure of the dead militant’s real identity.
However, Mainul Islam alias Musa was radicalized by executed JMB leader Siddiqul Islam alias Bangla Bhai. Musa hails from Rajshahi’s Bagmarha and got involved in militancy in 2004, when he was an 11th grader at Taherpur Degree College.
Kawsar Ali and Marzina Begum had rented a flat on the ground floor of Atiya Mahal from its owner Ustar Ali. While renting the house, they claimed that Kawsar was an audit officer of Pran Foods Ltd.
