The New Age and Amar Desh newspapers reported today, citing intelligence sources (hat tip Diganta):
"The fugitive chief of the terrorist organization Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), Shaikh Abdur Rahman, was reportedly arrested by the Indian police from a hideout at Barasat, 24 Parganas of West Bengal on Sunday."But the home ministry said that they are yet to be informed officially by India.
The same news have been picked up by the international media. But so far no further updates are available. This will be a huge leap in stopping the JMB terrorist activities in Bangladesh.
If the news is authentic then who will get the 5 million dollar (US$ 77,000) bounty on the head of Rahman declared by Bangladesh Government?
Update: Mac has more news.
Update 2: India confirms arrest of Rahman.
Update 3: More confusions. Now Indians are saying that the arrested man is not Abdur Rahman, but another JMB suspect named Sheikh Obeidur Rahman.
