Rajshahi raid: Female arrestee remanded
A Rajshahi court today placed a woman who was arrested during a police raid at a militant hideout in Godagari upazila of Rajshahi, on a ten-day remand in a case filed in connection to the incident.
Three days back, Sumaiya surrendered to police with her seven-year-old son Jubayer and one-and-a-half-month-old daughter Suraiya Akter Afia, after her parents and brother were killed in the raid.
Five suspected militants, including three of a family, were killed as they detonated two suicide belts and hacked a fireman to death during a 36-hour raid on the hideout on Thursday.
The five deceased are: Sumaiya's parents -- Sazzad and Lutfunnesa Bely, brother Al Amin, sister Karima and a madrasa student Ashraful.
