Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested three individuals for making hand bombs at a house in Tekpara area of Badda, Dhaka.

The arrestees have been identified as Fahim Rahman Abdullah, 22; Md Limon, 20; and Md Akul Mia, 21.

Acting on a tip-off, a team from RAB-3 conducted a raid around 9pm on Wednesday, seizing 65 hand bombs and a large quantity of bomb-making materials, according to a media release issued by RAB on Thursday.

During initial interrogation, RAB learned that Masum and Sajib – members of a group that makes hand bombs – from Narayanganj’s Signboard area, had ordered the bombs for robbery purposes 8-10 days prior. The arrested individuals were hired to manufacture the bombs.

The suspects rented a house in Tekpara, where they received Tk 26,000 to produce the bombs. Their target was to make 100 bombs, RAB stated. In total, five people, including the arrestees, were involved in the bomb-making operation, they said.
