The members of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) found three bodies Friday in an alleged militant den, Rubi Villa, located in the Nakhalpara area of the capital.
The bodies were recovered after the RAB attacked the building about 100 meters from the Prime Minister’s office, RAB officials said.
Nuruzzaman Montu, a resident near the building, said he heard about gunshots. At one point, law enforcement officers announced something with a microphone.
The elite force officials said they started the operation in the building, suspected of being a “militant hiding place” around 2:00 am.
Apparently, militants threw grenades at members of the RAB during the attack, the officers said.
The media wing of the RAB said the suspected militants remained on the fourth floor of a fifth-floor building.
The director of RAB’s media wing, Mufti Mahmud Khan, confirmed the deaths of three people in the so-called militant den. “
Earlier, Mufti said, “Since grenades have been thrown, entering the building is not safe at this time.
When asked if there was a brain inside the house, Mufti said, “We do not have this information yet.”
