Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested two alleged members of the outlawed Ansar Al Islam from a village in Rajshahi last night, BSS quoted RAB sources as saying.

The arrested persons were identified as Abdun Nur alias Masud, 19, and Sarwar Jahan alias Farhad, 20, from Chapainawabgonj sadar upazila.


On a tip-off, a team of the elite force conducted a raid in Boro Bangram under Shahmukhdum police station and arrested them around 10:15pm. They were reportedly holding an anti-state secret meeting at that time.

The RAB team also seized some controversial books and leaflets from their possession, the sources added.
