DHAKA (Reuters) – A trial court judge in northeastern Bangladesh was wounded in a bomb attack by a suspected Islamic militant, police said on Wednesday.
The attack on Tuesday came a day after police charged two top Islamist militant leaders for masterminding serial bombings in the country over past two months.
District Judge Biplab Goshwamy was hurt when the homemade bomb exploded as he just got out of a car in front of his house in the city if Sylhet, 300 km (190 miles) from the capital Dhaka.
Police said people chased and caught the bomber and recovered a live bomb from him. “We suspect him to be a militant of Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen,” Police Superintendent Sardar Rafiqul Islam told reporters.
