The bodies of two suspected JMB members were recovered from a ‘militant den’ at Zorarganj in Mirsarai upazila of Chattogram on Friday following a RAB operation there, reports UNB.
The members of the elite force recovered the bodies around 11:30am from a house named ‘Chowdhury Mansion’, said Shafayat Jamil Fahim, commanding officer of Feni RAB-7 camp.
A team of RAB earlier conducted a drive in the area around 3:00am and cordoned off the house.
At one stage, he said, the suspected militants opened fire and threw bombs at the elite forces, prompting them to retaliate.
A bomb disposal unit from Dhaka reached the spot in the morning.
The deceased were said to be the members of the banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), said Shafayat.
A man, identified himself as a worker of BSRM, rented out the house on 28 September, said Shafayat. According to the RAB, one AK-22 riffle, three pistols, five unexploded grenades were recovered from the house.
