One of the nine suspected militants killed in Tuesday’s police operation in Dhaka's Kalyanpur area has been identified as a Chittagong’s Anwara upazila Awami League leader’s son, Sabbirul Hoque alias Konik, UNB reports.
Former president of Baramchhara union unit of Awami League in Anwara upazila, Azizul Haque Chowdhury confirmed police on Wednesday morning that his eldest son, Konik, 22, was among the militants killed at Kalyanpur.
Azizul, also an employee of Chittagong City Corporation (CCC), identified his son seeing the photos of the nine killed militants published in the media.
He said Konik was a fourth year student of Chittagong International Islamic University’s Economics and Banking department, and used to live with them in their Ishaker Pool area house near Bakalia Kalamia Bazar in the port city.
He had been missing since he went out of his house in the name of attending a marriage ceremony at Raozan on February 21 last.
Aziz, however, said he did not file any general diary with the local police in this regard out of anger.
Family sources said Konik passed SSC from Chittagong Government Muslim High School in 2010 with golden GPA-5 in 2010 and HSC from Chittagong government Commerce College in 2012 with good results.
Locals said Konik used to remain missing for weeks in the name of going to Tablig Jamaat for preaching Islam. Even, a year ago he returned home after remaining missing for nearly three months, they said.
Bakalia Police Station officer-in-charge Abul Mansur said they went to Aziz’s city residence on Tuesday night, but did not find any inmate of it.
Earlier, Deputy Commissioner (Media) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Masudur Rahman said Sabbir’s parents contacted the Chittagong police super’s office and confirmed it to be their son after seeing his photograph on DMP’s Facebook page.
Meanwhile, the identities of two other militants killed in Kalyanpur have also been identified by family members.
One of them was identified as Jubayer Hossain, 20, son of Abdul Qaiyum and Ayera Begum of West Maizdi in Sudharam upazila of Noakhali district, said Ilias Sharif, superintendent of police of the district.
Another ‘militant’ was identified as Shehjad Rauf alias Arko,24, son of Towhid Rauf of Bashundhara Residential Area in Dhaka. Shehjad Rauf alias Arko was a student of North South University.
DMP Deputy Commissioner Masudur Rahma said the parents of the slain militants will be taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital morgue for their further identification.
Later, the DNA tests of the deceased will be conducted with court permission, the DC added.
Nine suspected militants were killed in police firing during an operation by a special team of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) in the city's Kalyanpur area early Tuesday.
The DMP released the photographs of the killed militants on its Facebook page later at night.
