ABT militant held over Niloy-Dipan killing

Detectives claimed to have arrested a leader of banned militant outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) last night in connection with the murders of secular blogger Niladri Niloy and Faisal Arefin Dipan, owner of Jagriti Prokashani.

The arrestee — Khairul Islam alias Fahim alias Jishan, 24,–  was arrested from Kamalapur Rail Station around 9:30pm yesterday, Masudur Rahman, deputy commissioner (media) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, told The Daily Star.

Khairul, one of the top operatives of ABT, has been working in the intelligence section of the militant outfit since 2014, Abdul Baten, joint commissioner of DB, told reporters at a press briefing at the DMP media centre.

On primary interrogation, he has admitted his involvement with the sensational murders of the free thinkers, The DMP official added.

Khairul started to collect information about the duo since January 2015 and provided those to the outfit’s Askari section (execution section).

On October 31 last year, Dipan was hacked to death at his office at Aziz Super Market in Dhaka’s Shabagh area on broad daylight. ABT had claimed responsibility of the murder.

Blogger Niloy was also hacked dead on August 7 in 2015 at his residence. On that very day, Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) claimed the murder.
