The Mastermind of Bangladesh cafe siege killed in raid, informed police as per reports of AFP.

An Islamist terrorist accused of being one the masterminds of last year’s deadly siege at a Bangladeshi cafe was killed during a pre-dawn raid Friday in the capital Dhaka, police said.

The bodies of Nurul Islam Marzan and another suspected extremist were recovered after officers raided a property in Dhaka’s Rayer Bazar neighbourhood, a spokesman for the Dhaka Metropolitan Police told AFP.

“We found two bodies. One of them was Marzan. And another was a suspected extremist,” additional deputy commissioner of DMP Yusuf Ali said.
