Four suspected Bangladeshi militants have been arrested for their possible links to the grenade attack on the British envoy to Dhaka two years ago, police said.

The four were arrested from northeastern Sylhet and Habibganj areas over the last two days and a court has granted them 10 days police remand, they said.

The suspects are being interrogated about their role in the attack, police said.

British High Commissioner Anwar Chowdhury was injured in the attack in 2004 when he went to pray at a shrine in Sylhet district. The attack killed three people and injured some 100 others.

Following the arrest, Chowdhury in a brief statement hoped justice would prevail.
