Ashkona raid: 14-yr boy suffered multiple bullet wounds
Afif Kaderi, the 14-year-old boy who died in a police raid at a militant hideout in Ashkona of Dhaka’s Dakkhin Khan on Saturday, suffered multiple bullet wounds, autopsy found.
“There were multiple bullet wounds in his body. One bullet has been taken out,” Sohel Mahmud, assistant professor of forensic medicine department at Dhaka Medical College, told The Daily Star after conducting autopsy.
Afif Kaderi, whose father Tanvir, a Neo JMB leader, committed suicide during the September 10 raid on a militant hideout in Azimpur, refused to surrender during the raid.
A suspected female militant, Shakira, died in a blast after she detonated her suicidal vest with parts of her body being damaged during the raid in Ashkona. She was carrying her daughter, Sabina, who survived with serious injuries.
After Shakira's death, Afif alias Ador alias Abir opened fire at police from inside the three-room flat.
Police fired shots and gas grenades as Afif did not surrender. Officials said Afif might have been killed in police firing around 2:30pm.
Afif's body was recovered last night.
Besides, two women -- wife of Major (retd) Jahid, and wife of “Neo JMB” leader Maynul Musa – surrendered during the drive with two babies.
