Thread: interesting development in Bangla jihad front. Bangladesh police now saying Shahjahan Bacchu (publisher, freethinker, atheist) was killed by JMB (real, not the fake one). The kicker? Police has already executed the prime suspect. This was first reported by @labu8080
According to a report in BT, "the main plotter" of the assassination Abdur Rahman was arrested on June 24. He was killed by the police in a *gunfight* (euphemism for extrajudicial execution) last night (Wednesday, June 27).
Abdur Rahman was a member/leader of JMB and apparently interrogated at some length by regular police and CTTC. He was killed only after "all important details" were "extracted from him". We will never know the details, since this is not going to court, just like other cases :-/
So, the JMB connection in Bacchu assassination means the old jihadis are back. In the last few years JMB was absent from action and focused on reorganising + propaganda. JMB's return -- esp. in an election year -- is ominous.
Is JMB now going to follow AQIS in systematically targeting shatims across Bangladesh? That will be a disaster and we need to learn more about their program. Abdur Rahman, the "main plotter" of Bacchu assassination, could have told us more, but he has now been killed.
