Sohel Mahfuz, a Neo JMB leader and key accused in the Gulshan cafe attack case, reportedly gave a confessional statement before a court in Dhaka on Sunday.
Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Ahsan Habib recorded the confessional statement when Humayun Kabir, inspector of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, produced Sohel before it on completion of his 2nd-phase remand.
Sohel Mahfuz is said to be one of the masterminds of the terror attack on Gulshan Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka that left 20 hostages and two senior police officers dead.
Sohel is also the northern region commander of Neo-JMB, an ultra-radical offshoot of Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh.
Earlier, on July 8, a CTTC team and police arrested Sohel Mahfuz, the founder ameer of JMB India, at Shibganj upazila in Chapainawabganj.
