Eleven Bangladeshi nationals, who were sent back by Sri Lanka yesterday following the April 21 blasts, were working at a copper factory owned by Inshaf Ibrahim, who “detonated the explosive device” at the luxury Shangri-La hotel in Colombo.
As Sri Lanka authorities sealed off the factory, the workers of the factory including 11 Bangladeshi were sent back to their respective countries, said Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit Chief Monirul Islam.
They are being interrogated, the CTTC chief said while talking to reporters at his office today.
The 11 Bangladeshis went to Sri Lanka with tourist visa and were involved in a low profile job at the copper factory.
The workers landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka around 11:30am yesterday, said Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit Chief Monirul Islam while talking to reporters at his office today.
