Dhaka, Oct 22 | Jamaat-e-Islami leader Kamaluddin Abbasi has pleaded guilty to his involvement in an attack on a Durga puja mandap in Bangladesh’s Hajiganj earlier this month.
He made confession on Thursday evening in the court of Chandpur Senior Judicial Magistrate Mohammad Kamaluddin.
In his statement, he also revealed the names of the other persons involved in the incident, said Milan Mahmud, superintendent of Chandpur Police.
A group of the militants attacked the Hajiganj Bazar temple after 8 p.m. on October 13. When the police tried to control the situation, there was a clash with the attackers.
A total of five people were killed in the ensuing violence.
CCTV footage of the attack showed Abbasi leading the violence.
About 5,000 unidentified persons have been accused in 10 cases of the nationwide violence, and the police have arrested 29 people so far.
According to Mahmud, an operation is underway to nab the other perpetrators.
Dalal Street found no relief with incessant sell off during the month. Nifty traded on a bearish note and ended at 16025.80 with loss of 99.35 points or 0.62 percent following weak global cues on Wednesday. While Banknifty closed at 34339.50 on the higher side with marginal gain of 49.35 points.
The weakness in US stocks is playing out globally with signs of higher inflation, which has spoiled investors’ appetite for the Indian market as well. Rising India VIX to 25.28 has led Indices to big intraday swings on both sides. Sectorally maximum sectors closed on the negative side as Nifty IT and Nifty Media sheds more than 3 percent each. While Nifty Financial Services ended on a positive side gaining 0.68 percent.
In nifty stocks, NTPC, HDFCLIFE, SBILIFE were the top gainers while ASIANPAINT, ADANIPORT and TECHM were the prime laggards. Coming to the OI Data, on the call side highest OI witnessed at 16200 followed by 16300 strike price while on the put side, the highest OI was at 15800 strike price. Technically, Nifty has formed three black crow patterns in the daily chart suggesting bearishness would remain intact. We expect a rise in volatility as well on monthly expiry day.
Riding against the trend may not be beneficial for short term traders. All major moving averages are lying above 16300 levels. Indicators such as MACD and RSI are still struggling to overcome the oversold zone in the daily time frame. Overall, Nifty is having support at 15800 mark while on the upside 16300 may act as an immediate resistance for monthly expiry. While Banknifty has support around 33500 while resistance is placed at 35200 on the daily chart.
