Not the Shaikh Abdur Rahman we are looking for!


The arrested suspect initially gave his name as Shayek Abdur Rahman, police said, but was only around 23 years old. The head of the outlawed Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen group with the same name is nearer 60. "He is not the same person but it took a while to establish his identity," said a senior intelligence official, speaking just after questioning the suspect. "But he is a Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen member who could have fled after the blasts." Rahman and another Islamist leader, Siddikul Islam Bangla Bhai, who heads the radical Jagrata Muslim Janata Bangladesh group, have been missing since nearly 500 bombs exploded simultaneously across Bangladesh on Aug. 17 last year. The suspect was picked on Sunday up from his hideout in a village in the eastern Indian state of West Bengal, which has a long, porous border with Bangladesh
