Hannan Shah alleged that the government is giving ‘mysterious and confusing’ information over anti-militancy raid in Narayanganj that killed three militants, including Gulshan café attacker Tamim Tamim Chowdhury.
Referring to media reports that Tamim fled to India after the Gulshan attack, the BNP leader voiced his doubt as to how he went to Narayanganj and get killed.
He also criticised the government for not arresting the militants alive. “The militants could have been arrested alive to extract information from them about the root of militancy had our law enforcers wanted it.
Hannan Shah claimed that the owner of the Narayanganj house where militants made their den belongs to a ruling party man.
Three militants, including Tamim Chowdhury, were killed during a special raid by joint forces on a militant den on the third floor of a three-storey building at Paikpara in Narayanganj Sadar upazila on Saturday morning.
