No member of militants’ family received their dead bodies yet


Though the identities of eight of the nine slain Kalyanpur militants have been confirmed, no one of their family members has showed interest as of Saturday evening to receive their bodies for burial.Besides, the body of another suspected slain militant is still remained unidentified as the sample of his fingerprint did not match with that of NIDs. Even no one of his family members or friends has come to identify his body.
Nine suspected militants were killed during police operation on the 4th floor of a 6-storey building ‘Taj Manjil’ in the city’s Kalyanpur area on July 26.
The identities of seven suspected militants — Abdullah, Abu Hakim Nayeem, Tajul Haque Rashik, Aqifuzzaman Khan, Shehjad Rauf, Md Matiur Rahman, and Md Zubair Hossain — were confirmed after the fingerprint samples of their bodies matched with that of the corresponding NID cards in the same day evening. The body of another killed militant, Raihan Kabir, was identified by law enforcers on July 28.
