>arms dealer ‘linked to militancy’ confesses to arms, currency racketeering

>DETECTIVES have arrested a person allegedly involved in arms and fake currency rackets that finance militancy. A team of Detective Branch (DB) led by Assistant Commissioner Golam Azad Khan made the arrest at a restaurant on Babar Road in the capital’s Mohammadpur area on Thursday night. The Daily Star reports.

It also recovered a huge amount of fake currencies and a pistol from the arrestee, Shafique Mahmud Selim alias Professor Selim.

Of the seized counterfeit notes, Tk 5 lakh are Bangladeshi currency and Tk 50,000 Indian.

Meanwhile, a Dhaka court yesterday placed Selim, 42, on seven days’ remand in two cases–one filed for possession of illegal firearms and the other for fake currencies.
