Dhaka: Forensic department of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) this morning started to conduct an autopsy on the bodies of top “Neo JMB” leader Nurul Islam Marzan and his associate Saddam Hossain alias Rahul killed in a “gunfight” with police in the capital on Thursday.

The autopsy of the two bodies have started around 10 am, said Dr Sohel Mahmud, head of the forensic department.

Earlier, on Thursday, the two militants were killed in police firing during an operation by a special team of police in city’s Beribadh area.

Saddam was wanted in at least 10 murder cases, including that for the killing of Japanese national Kunio Hoshi in Rangpur and Jogeshwar Das Adhikari in Panchagarh.

Marzan along with more than a dozen other militant leaders grabbed the attention of law enforcers after the café attack, which left 22 people, mostly foreigners, dead on July 1 last year.
