Chattogram Metropolitan Police (CMP) Counter-Terrorism Unit’s Deputy Commissioner (DC) Farukul Haque said the JMB leader was the mastermind behind the bomb blast.
Police produced him before a court in the afternoon seeking a 5-day remand but the count put him on one-day remand, he said.
Five people including two cops were injured in the blast on February 28 of the year.
Nine of the 12 accused arrested in the case have already testified in the court under section 164. Of them, eight accused mentioned Selim’s name.
