DHAKA: The son of a senior leader of Bangladesh’s ruling Awami League could be one of the seven attackers who hacked to death 20 hostages at a restaurant in the diplomatic enclave here, a media report said on Sunday.

Rohan Ibne Imtiaz, the son of SM Imtiaz Khan Babul,a leader of the party’s Dhaka City chapter and Bangladesh Olympic Association’ s deputy secretary general, has been identified as one of the attackers by another Awami League leader, BD News reported. Babul lodged a police complaint on January 4, stating that his son had been missing.

“We have identified him (Rohan) as Imtiaz Babul’s son after going through the pictures that came up in the media and on Facebook,” Mukul Chowdhury, a vice-president of the recently- defunct Awami League’ s Dhaka City unit committee, was quoted as saying.

Babul was the youth and sports secretary of the same committee Chowdhury had served. Rohan completed his A-levels from Scholastica, known as a school for the children of well-to-do families in Dhaka.
