With the help of the Saudi government, the two men who threatened have been identified and returned to the country, CTTC said. CTTC also said that they are the leaders of the youth party.
On April 17 last year, an e-mail from the Public Relations Center of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) threatened to kill the Prime Minister.
The two arrested are Deen Islam and Kabir Hossain. The CTTC says two of the attackers have been identified with the help of the Saudi government. The two were brought back to the country on January 29 after applying to the Saudi government through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. They are now in police custody.
CTTC Additional Commissioner Asaduzzaman gave this information in a press conference at DMP Media Center on Sunday. He told the reporters that the arrested Kabir Hossain is the president of the youth group in Saudi Arabia. Deen Islam is also the leader of Juba Dal. They threatened to attack the Prime Minister to create chaos in the country. Attempts are being made to find out whether anyone else is involved with them or not.
Asaduzzaman also said that CTTC was informed by media center after receiving the threatening e-mail. CTTC officials identified Deen Islam as the threat after starting the investigation. The matter was informed to the senior police officers. Later the Prime Minister’s security was strengthened.
CTTC sources also said that they bought a new mobile phone to threaten the Prime Minister. They opened a new mail ID and threatened to kill the Prime Minister. Later the mobile phone was destroyed. E-mail ID is deactivated.
In the press conference, the police also said that Deen Islam and Kabir Hossain have been working and doing business in Saudi Arabia for about 10 years. Apart from this, they are involved in anti-national propaganda on social media and YouTube.
