Dhaka: Bangladesh police have arrested two alleged operatives of banned Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) from south-eastern port city of Chittagong.
"Detectives have arrested two alleged members of banned militant outfit ABT," a police spokesman said.

Police last month announced bounty leading to arrests of the fugitive major alongside Bangladeshi-Canadian Tamim Chowdhury describing the latter as the top leader of Neo-Jamaatul Mujahideen (neo-JMB).

Chowdhury, however, was killed in a security raid at a militant hideout at Narayanganj on the outskirts of the capital along with two other alleged terrorists on August 27....
