Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Saturday said the instigators and the perpetrators of Gulshan café terror attack have been identified.“Law enforcers are on a manhunt for their arrest, and the mystery behind the incident will be debunked soon,” said the minister while talking to reporters at the Secretariat.“Law enforcement agencies are conducting investigations against the identified criminals, and they’ll take legal steps as soon as possible.

We’re not revealing the details in the interest of investigation,” said the minister.Replying to a question about the identities of the criminals, Kamal said the attackers are Bangladeshi nationals but the instigators might be from abroad.“Detectives had information about attacks across the country before the Gulshan attack. That’s why we ordered our law enforcers to remain alert. After having information about the café attack, Banani thana officer-in-charge (OC) Salahuddin rushed to the spot and died at the United Hospital in Gulshan after having hit during the attack,” he said.“The people who have raised question about OC Salauddin have connection with criminals,” said the minister while responding to another question.He said terrorism is now a global threat and terrorists are also changing their plot patterns as Gulshan attack added a new dimension.At least 28 people, including 17 foreigners, three Bangladeshis, six attackers and two senior police officials were killed as terrorists attacked Holey Artisan Bakery restaurant at the city’s Gulshan diplomatic zone on July 1.
