Interpol wanted terror-funder organizes cadres under the garb of relief operation


Sitting in London, for years, Interpol wanted convicted terror-funder Shahid Uddin Khan has been running vile propaganda against Bangladesh while he also has been making attempts of terrorist activities in the country by recruiting youths. Recently when law enforcement agencies arrested one of Shahid Uddin Khan’s gang members, he had openly admitted of plotting jihadist and suicide attacks in Bangladesh with the notorious agenda of toppling-down the democratically elected government of Sheikh Hasina.

Giving reaction about the arrest of his agent, Shahid Uddin Khan in his Facebook post said: “Hundreds of people are ready to sacrifice their blood and become martyrs” for unseating the government in Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, on June 24, 2022, an individual named Shahadot Ullah Nur Sumon, an activist of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) in a Facebook post said: “Alhamdulillah. Manobik Sheba Foundation’s ongoing relief activities are organized by the Manobik Sheba Foundation of Sylhet, for the 5th time, food items were distributed in 5th ward of Silam UP under Dakshin Surma Upazila. In collaboration with Colonel Shahid Uddin Sir”. Although this post may look very much innocent and humane, in reality, it is one of the notorious bids of Interpol wanted terror-funder Shahid Uddin Khan in recruiting youths and later deploy them towards terrorist activities in Bangladesh.

According to information, Shahdot Ullah Nur is a relative of Abdur Rab Bhuttow, a pro-Islamist anti-Bangladesh, anti-India, anti-Hindu and anti-secularist propagandist and active cohort of Shahid Uddin Khan. It is learnt from credible sources that at advice of Abdur Rab Bhuttow, Interpol wanted Shahid Uddin Khan is using the banner of pro-BNP ‘Manobik Sheba Foundation’ in recruiting and organizing youths for his dangerous agenda against Bangladesh and the democratically elected government. As Shahadot Ullah Nur has claimed that Shahid Uddin Khan is funding their “relief activities”, it is not clear as to how a fugitive who is on run since 2018 sent cash from London to Shahadot Ullah Nur, although it is anticipated that such amounts were transferred from London to Sylhet through transnational money-laundering network of Shahid Uddin Khan.

It may be mentioned here that the Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has arrested a member of the sleeper cell of terrorist group run by a UK-based terror funder Shahid Uddin Khan during late hours of June 11, 2022. According to media reports quoting DB sources, eyeing on the grand inauguration of the Padma Bridge, Bangladesh’s symbol of pride and achievement, vested interest groups, including members of terror-funder Shahid Uddin Khan’s group are plotting various types of subversive and terrorist acts, including suicide attacks in Bangladesh. As part of Shahid Uddin Khan’s notorious plot of terrorist activities on June 25 inauguration day of the bridge, leaflets and posters were being circulated in the country with the ulterior agenda of creating confusion in the minds of people as well the well-disciplined forces in the country.

According to our information, Md. Shahid Uddin Khan (Army No: BA002428, Course: 8-BMA, Commission Date: 10-06-1983) Khan, invested millions of pounds in the United Kingdom in exchange for obtaining immigrant status under Visa Tier 1, vide VAF No. 511702. The family had laundered an unknown amount of money and brought that into the United Kingdom via the United Arab Emirates and a few more countries, while Shahid Uddin Khan had invested over 18 million pounds for buying citizenship under Britain’s ‘Golden Visa’ scheme. In a video statement released on June 11, 2022 on his Facebook ID, Shahid Uddin Khan has openly admitted that the entire amount was smuggled into the United Kingdom from Bangladesh as the British authorities do not ask “anyone” as to how they brought such large sum of cash into the country.

On May 25, 2019. prestigious British newspaper The Sunday Times published a report stating Md Shahid Uddin Khan has been charged with funding terror groups, arms dealing and money laundering offenses in Bangladesh. According to the British newspaper, the sacked army officer has political links in Britain and had funded Stephen Hammond, a Tory Party MP.

On June 14, 2019, Indian newspaper The Business Standard as well as IANS news agency in their report saidIndian intelligence agencies are probing a deep-rooted nexus involving underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and a London-based former Colonel of the Bangladesh army. The agencies suspect that the Bangladeshi army officer, allegedly involved in gun running, has links with Dawood Ibrahim’s underworld activities operating from India’s eastern borders.
