Bangladesh’s Awami League leader’s son among Dhaka attackers
DHAKA (92 News) – Bangladesh’s ruling Awami League leader’s son is one of the seven attackers who hacked to death 20 hostages at a restaurant in the diplomatic enclave.
Rohan Ibne Imtiaz, the son of S M Imtiaz Khan Babul, a leader of the party’s Dhaka City chapter and Bangladesh Olympic Association’s deputy secretary general, has been identified as one of the attackers by another Awami League leader.
Babul had lodged a police complaint on January 4 this year stating that his son had been missing.
Former classmates have uploaded a photo combo in the social media of Rohan with his parents and the photo, monitoring group SITE Intelligence published on Twitter, reportedly released by the ISIS, as one of the Dhaka cafe attackers.
The hostage crisis at the cafe at Dhaka’s upscale Gulshan neighbourhood ended in bloodbath after army commandos raided and freed 13 hostages.
The army said six attackers had been killed in the counter strike and that 20 hostages, mostly foreigners, were found slaughtered inside the restaurant.
