4 terrorists of Neo-JMB surrender in B’desh after gunfight

| | Dhaka

Four militants of the banned Neo-JMB terror outfit today surrendered to Bangladesh’s elite anti- terrorism force after a gunfight with security personnel on the outskirts of the capital city.

The team of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), which draws personnel from military and police forces, surrounded the tin-shed house in suburban Savar around 1 am after a tip-off that militants were holed up inside the building.

The militants were ordered to surrender, but they started indiscriminate firing, triggering a heavy exchange of gunfire with security forces, operation chief RAB-4 Commanding Officer Additional DIG Lutful Kabir said. “All the four militants who were inside finally gave up and none else are there inside... Our bomb disposal unit are now examining the house,” a spokesman of RAB told PTI.

The militants inside the house fired five rounds of shots when they became aware of the RAB presence, Kabir said.

“We asked the militants to surrender using our megaphones, but instead they hurled abuse at the law enforcers and started firing,” he said.

One of the four terrorists first came out and surrendered after which three others followed suit an hour later.
