Nothing found in raids on ‘Ctg militant hideouts’

Police say they have found nothing suspicious in the raid on two houses, suspected to be used by militants in Chittagong's Akbar Shah Police Station area, reports

The simultaneous search operations began at around 3:30pm on Monday at a house at Road-1 in CDA Residential Area and the other, around a kilometre away on the opposite side of the Dhaka-Chittagong Highway, at North Kattoli Ishan Mahazon Lane in Kalibari area.

Personnel from SWAT and bomb disposal unit also took part in the 3-hour operation which ended at around 6:30pm.

"Nothing has been found in the operations," Deputy Commissioner of Chittagong Metropolitan Police Farukul Islam told the media in the evening.

Earlier today, Nazmul Ahsan, additional deputy commissioner of Chittagong Metropolitan Police (West zone), said a team of police, including a bomb disposal unit, and Special Weapon and Tactic Team (SWAT) members, cordoned off the two houses around 4:15 pm.

Some 200 members of the law enforcement agencies launched the operation in the houses, he said.

The raid comes only a day after Chittagong police searched a madrasa affiliated with terrorism, and four days after the Sitakunda raid.
