Seven college students from Comilla and Dhaka left the house on August 23 and did not return. The family lodged a complaint with the police station. Later, a young man from Dhaka returned home on September 1. Based on the information given by him, RAB came to know about the debut of a new militant organization ‘Jamatul Ansar Fil Hindal Sharqiya’ after arresting seven people for a month.
In a press conference on October 10, RAB revealed that 55 youths were found homeless in the last two years due to ‘militancy’, and the force published a list of 38 of them.
