Dhaka, July 27 (ANI): The head of the Dhaka Medical College Hospital forensic team on Wednesday said the nine militants killed in Kallyanpur's raid died of gunshot wounds, most of those in their backs.

"All the militants died of gunshots. We have recovered seven bullets from four bodies while the other five had bullets penetrated through their bodies. Most of the wounds were sustained in the backs," the Dhaka Tribune quoted assistant Professor Sohel Mahmud, as saying.

He added, "We have collected hair, blood, urine and thigh tissues as samples from the bodies to send to labs for further investigation. We will also find out if they were on any kind of drugs."

The autopsy which began at 11.30 a.m local time ended at 2 p.m. in the DMCH morgue.

The three-member team began the procedure after receiving inquest report from Mirpur police.

Law enforcers stepped up their presence in the hospital to avert any untoward incident.

Meanwhile, three families have identified two of the militants killed in Kallyanpur raid as their sons.

However, there remains confusion over one militant who is being claimed as the son of two people.

While one family from Noakhali is naming him as Jubayer Hossain, another family from Chittagong is claiming him to be Sabhirul Hoque Konik.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Deputy Commissioner Masudur Rahman said the police have asked the families to come to Dhaka for confirmation.

"The bodies will be handed over to the families only if their DNA matches," he added.

Yesterday, a joint force drive in Dhaka's Kalyanpur area named operation 'Storm 26' neutralised nine militants and arrested one after an overnight standoff.

Reports suggest the detainee claimed that he was a militant of the Islamic State, but Bangladesh's Police chief A.K.M. Shahidul Hoque said the terrorists belonged to the banned Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) outfit.

The police said that these militants had a lot in common with those terrorists, who attacked Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka's diplomatic zone on July 1 and Sholakia Eidgah on Eid. (ANI)
