‘Plot’ to kill actor Khijir Hayat

CTTC arrests 2 ‘ABT men’

UNB, Dhaka

Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has arrested two suspected members of banned militant outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) from the city's Banani, foiling an alleged plot to kill actor and producer Khijir Hayat Khan.

The arrestees are known as Md Emdadul Islam alias Mehedi Hasan alias Sabuj alias Abu Salman alias Hujaifa, 30, and Abu Bakar alias Fahim Abdullah, 20.

Based on secret information, a CTTC team conducted a drive in front of a under-construction building at Road-25 of Banani around 3:45pm and arrested the duo, DMP Deputy Commissioner (Media) Masudur Rahman said yesterday.

During preliminary interrogation, the arrestees reportedly revealed that they are active ABT members and had hatched a plot to kill Khijir Hayat Khan.

Abu Bakar had already taken photographs of the Cumilla village home of the actor as part of the plan, said the DMP official.

They said they had planned to kill Khijir Hayat as his film 'Mr Bangladesh', which was released recently, is an anti-militancy movie.

They also opened a Telegram ID named 'Esho Kafela Boddha Hoi' and exchanged information among them about the plot to kill Khijir through it, Masudur Rahman said, adding that a case was filed with Banani Police Station on Monday night.

Meanwhile, the arrestees were put on a three-day remand yesterday for interrogation.
