Rajshahi: Police arrested a suspected militant during a raid on a suspected militant den at Darikharbona in Rajshahi early on Thursday.
Tipped off, a team of police conducted a drive on the 6th floor of an eight‐storey building in the area around 11:00pm, said AKM Nahidul Islam Nahid, deputy commissioner of Rajshahi Metropolitan Police.
During the two‐hour drive, the law enforcers arrested a man, suspecting his involvement with a militant group and recovered Tk 11.90 lakh in cash and one laptop from the house, he said.
