Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) recovered three bodies from a room of a suspected militant hideout at Mirpur’s Mazar Road in the city on Wednesday afternoon, reports news agency UNB.

Mufti Mahmud Khan, RAB Director (Legal and Media), came up with the information while talking to reporters at the spot.

RAB personnel entered the militant den and found three charred bodies, Mufti said, adding they could not identify the bodies immediately.

Earlier, in the day law enforcers resumed their operation around 9:30 am at the militant den after overnight massive explosions and exchange of gunfire.

Fire fighters rushed to the spot as a fire broke out in the hideout after the militants commenced a daring counterattack of bomb explosions and gunfire against the law enforcers on Tuesday night.

Mufti Mahmud Khan said the militants carried out three massive explosions inside the building around 9:45pm on Tuesday followed by three more blasts which led to a fire, leaving four RAB men injured with splinters.

“It might be chemical firing,” he said, adding that casualties could be known after entering the building once the fire is doused.

Suspected militant Abdullah agreed to surrender along with his two wives, two children and two associates between 7:30 pm and 8pm, Mahmud told a press conference in front of the building on Tuesday evening.

He said they earlier asked Abdullah, son of late Mir Yusuf Ali of Chuadanga district, to surrender when he sought time for taking the decision. “We gave him time. Few minutes before the dusk fell, he informed us that he’ll surrender along with his family members and associates,” he said.

As per his commitment, Abdullah sent his wives—Nasreen and Fatema—and two children to the balcony. But later he didn’t surrender.

Meanwhile, Inspector General of Police AKM Shahidul Hoque visited the spot in the morning.

As part of the security arrangement, the law enforcers evacuated all the residents from the building and adjacent ones.

Earlier, Abdullah’s mentally challenged sister Meherunnesa came out of the house.

Tipped off, a RAB team cordoned off the six-storey building on the south side of Martyred Intellectuals’ Graveyard at 12 am on Tuesday.

Earlier, police arrested two suspected militants conducting a drive in Tangail district and got information about Abdullah from the arrestees.
