DHAKA: Three Pakistani men were arrested in Bangladesh for allegedly carrying a bomb-making manual and a laptop containing information on military training, police said on Monday.

The Dhaka police spokesman Monirul Islam said that they were arrested last night from the capital Dhaka, adding that all three admitted to have received training from the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) to carry out terrorist attacks.

The spokesman said that they migrated to Pakistan from western Myanmar and were later trained by the TTP.

“They have special trainings in car bombs. They took training on grenade and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) from the main trainers of the TTP in Pakistan’s territory of Waziristan,” Islam said.
