Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) arrested a youth on charge of connection with banned militant outfit Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) at Elenaga in Kalihati upazila under the district on Sunday night.
The arrestee is Mohammad Borhan Uddin alias Razib, 25, son of Nizam Uddin of Chinamura Madhyapara village in the upazila.
Rab also recovered a 0.9mm pistol and three bullets from his possession, said Bina Rani Das, commander of Crime Prevention Company-3 of Rab-12.
“On September 4 night, the elite force arrested JMB suspects Masum and Khokon from Masinda in the same upazila and seized an improvised drone, machetes, axes, and controversial Islamic literature from their possession.
“They told the investigators that they bought the machetes and axes from Razib,” Bina said.
