DHAKA : A Dhaka court today placed neo-JMB leader and one of the masterminds behind Holey Artisan Bakery attack, Jahangir Alam alias Rajib Gandhi, to eight-day remand.

“Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Mahmudul Hasan passed the order as police produced the militant leader before the court and pleaded for putting him on ten days of remand in Holey Artisan Bakery attack case,” a court official said.

Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) arrested Gandhi from Elenga Bus Stand in Tangail last night.

According to the police, Gandhi was behind as many as twenty murders committed by new-JMB across the country. He recruited two of the Gulshan attackers in JMB and gave them training.

Gandhi also trained one of the Sholakia attackers Shafiul Islam alias Dawn and sent him to neo-JMB leader Tamim Chowdhury.
