>new militant group on the block?

>THE ameer of Islami Samaj and six out of the eight of its members arrested in Bandarban on August 7 for propagating Islamist militancy said they have past history with Islami Chhatra Shibir, reports The Daily Star.
The arrestees told law enforcers that a few of them even held leadership positions in Shibir, the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami.
Another Islami Samaj leader Ansar Ali, one of the seven who were arrested on the same night in Jamalpur, had been detained twice before on charge of his ties with banned Islamist militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB).
Different intelligence agencies are currently working on to dig up details about the Islami Samaj and its activists, said sources.
On last Thursday, Islami Samaj Ameer Syed Humayun Kabir was interrogated for several hours at the office of an intelligence agency, said the sources adding that the agency did not yet arrest Kabir.
