The bodies of two suspected militants were recovered from one of the ‘militant dens’ at Bhogiratpur under Sadar upazila of Narsingdi following the joint operation, "Gordian Knot" on Tuesday.

While briefing journalists around 4 pm today, Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit chief Monirul Islam said the operation in the five-stories building ended just now and two bodies, including one of a female, were recovered.

He said: "They opened fire on us during the operation that triggered a gunfight in which they died. "

A firearm and four fresh bombs were recovered from the den, he added.

Earlier, members of Counter Terrorism and Transnational (CTTC) unit of DMP and Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) started the operation at the ‘militant den’ in the morning.

The CTTC unit kept another den cordoned off at Madhabdi in Sadarupazila since Monday night.

Two SWAT teams and detectives joined the CTTC team early Tuesday.
