[RxPG] Dhaka, March 2 - Police raided a stronghold of Islamist militants at Bagmara in the western district of Rajshahi district and nabbed ten militants belonging to a proscribed Islamist body, the Jama'atul Mujahideen -.

One of them is Abdus Sattar, a close associate of Siddiqul Islam alias Bangla Bhai, who is awaiting the gallows for murdering two judges. Sattar, also a teacher of Jatragachhi Fazil Madrasa, was allegedly reorganising absconding JMB militants.

His arrest is part of the ongoing drive against militancy being conducted by the caretaker government of Chief Advisor Fakhruddin Ahmed.

Sattar is widely believed to have helped Bangla Bhai in his so-called anti-outlaw operations of Jagrata Muslim Janata, Bangladesh - in Bagmara in 2004, The Daily Star newspaper said on Friday.

Bagmara was for long Bangla Bhai's stronghold from where he undertook his campaign, spreading terror among the religious minorities and political opponents.

The then government of Begum Khaleda Zia denied the existence of the campaign.

It acted only after 500-plus explosions across the country on Aug 17, 2005.
