3 JMB men sent to jail
A Chittagong court yesterday sent three suspected activists of outlawed Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) to jail after their five-day remand had ended.
Metropolitan Magistrate Rahamat Ali passed the order after detectives had produced the three before his court, said Assistant Commissioner (Prosecution) Nirmalendu Chakrabarty.
Earlier, the Detective Branch (DB) of Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) interrogated the JMB men -- Naimur Rahman Nayan, Faisal Mahmud and Shawkat Russell, all students of physics at Chittagong University -- for five days in connection with a case filed under the Anti-Terrorism Act with Karnaphuli police.
The trio were arrested on December 26 in different spots of the port city.
After gleaning information from them, detectives raided a den of JMB's Chittagong Regional Commander Md Fardin in Hathazari's Amanbazar area the next day and recovered a sophisticated rifle, camouflage uniforms, bullets, explosives and bomb making materials.
