The local administration has imposed Section 144 around the suspected militant hideout in Chhoto Godairghat area under Madhabdi Municipality area.
The law enforcers have been cordoning off the seven-storied building since Monday night suspecting it a militant den while they recovered two bullet-hit bodies from inside another militant hideout in the district yesterday.
The Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of the Police was taking preparation to launch a fresh drive inside the building when the report was filed at 9 am today. CTTC chief Monirul Islam confirmed the news.
Earlier on Monday night, the law enforcers locked down the flat from the outside and evacuated the other falts on security ground.
The police have adviced the residents and journalists not to open the doors and windows of their houses or climb to the rooftop. All educational and business outlets were asked to remain closed.
