The five suspected militants, who were killed in ‘suicide bomb blasts and gunshots’ during an operation in Rajshahi on Thursday, were buried as unclaimed ones on Saturday.

Quantum Foundation, a private organisation, buried the five bodies at Hetemkha graveyard in Rajshahi city around 3:30pm, said Foundation organiser Enayet Kabir Milon, reports UNB.

The suspected militants are: Sazzad Hossain, 50, his wife Beli Begum, 40, son Al Amin, 25, daughter Karima, 18, and another Ashraful, 20, a BSc engineer and son of Abdul Haque of Char Chakla village in Chapainawabganj district.

Earlier, the five suspected militants, including a woman, and a firefighter, Abdul Matin, were killed in suicide bomb blast’ and gunshots fired by ‘militants’ as law enforcers raided the militant hideout at Godagari upazela in Rajshahi on Thursday morning.

Besides, seven policemen were injured during the operation.

Enamul Haque, a physician of RMCH Forensic Department, on Saturday told reporters that Ashraful and Al Amin were killed in the suicide blasts while Sazzad was killed in firing and Beli and Karima killed by bomb splinters and bullets.  

Police also rescued two children -- Jubayer and Apiya -- from the house, said officer-in-charge of Godagari Police Station Hifzur Alam Munshi. They were now under the police custody.

The bodies were handed over to Quantum Foundation from Rajshahi Medical College Hospital (RMCH) morgue on Saturday noon for burial as the family members refused to receive the bodies due to their involvements in the anti-state activities, said OC Hifzur Alam Munshi.
