Arms, Ammunition Hauled at Bangladesh Madrassah


A large cache of arms, ammunition, explosives, grenades and bomb-making materials were recovered from a madrassah-cum-orphanage complex in remote Ram-Keshabpur village at Borhanuddin in Bhola on Tuesday.

The Rapid Action Battalion also detained four people, including two memers on the staff of the Green Crescent Madrassah at Ram Keshabpur, about 40km off the district headquarters, the battalion's team leader Major KM Mamun said.

The detained are Mohammad Russell, 31, teacher of the madrassah, Hamidullah, supervisor of the madrassah, Mohammad Jasim, construction worker, and Abul Kalam, carpenter of the madrassah.

According to Mamun, links of a London-based non-governmental organisation to the madrassah could be detected.

Referring to interrogation of the arrested, he said the London-based NGO Green Crescent had built the madrassah and the orphanage building on 12 acres of land four years ago.
