Did Bangladeshi gunmen study in private varsity in M’sia?


PUTRAJAYA: The Ministry of Higher Education has taken note of today’s newspaper reports stating that one or more of the alleged perpetrators of the recent Bangladesh terror attacks had possibly studied at a private university in Malaysia at some point in time.

The Ministry said in its statement that it views this as a serious matter. It will investigate as well as work together with relevant enforcement agencies on this matter.

Twenty people, most of them foreigners, were killed in an attack on a cafe in Bangladesh by the so-called Islamic State.

The gunmen stormed the Holey Artisan Bakery cafe in Dhaka late on Friday before troops entered almost 12 hours later and killed six of the seven gunmen. One was captured alive and arrested.
