Dhaka Metropolitan Detective Police say they have arrested three members of the banned militant outfit Jama'atul Ansar Fil Hindal Sharqiya, reports bdnews24.com.

The police media cell shared the information in a press statement on Monday night but did not provide details about the arrestees or when and where they were arrested. It only mentioned the militants were trained by the tribal separatist group Kuki-Chin National Front (KNF).

The detective branch of police will provide details in a press briefing on Tuesday.

The Bangladesh Army led a mission against the KNF after there were bloody clashes, bank robberies and weapons looting in the hill tracts. A few dozen KNF members were arrested while the authorities warned tourists not to travel to the hills.
