Dr Gias Uddin AhsanPolice have arrested three people, including North South University’s acting pro-VC Dr Gias Uddin Ahsan, for renting out a flat to the attackers of Holey Artisan Bakery, said Maksudur Rahman, deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP).

The other arrestees are Gias’ nephew Alam Chowdhury and building manager Mahbubur Rahman Tuhin.

A team of Counterterrorism and Transnational Crimes (CTTC) unit arrested them around 5pm Saturday.

According to police, associates of the five attackers moved into the flat at Block E, Road 6 of Bashundhara Residential Area on May 16, but Gias Uddin did not collect the required information from the tenants to submit it to police, as per the DMP directive.

Police found sand-filled cartons and used clothes in the flat. They suspect the grenades used by attackers at Holey Artisan were carried in those cartons.

They also suspect the five attackers started living in the flat in the beginning of Ramadan, and the plan for the attack was finalised there.
