dhaka - The Bangladesh authorities found no evidence that the alleged perpetrator of the attack in New York had connections with militants in that country. Meanwhile, the police in Bangladesh questioned family members of 27-year-old Akayed Ullah who was born in Bangladesh and lived in New York.
Thus his wife, father-in-law and mother-in-law were subjected to interrogation. This did not reveal any ties with extremists and no names of others with connections, according to the police.
Ullah spent Monday in an underground corridor that forms the connection between the large bus terminal Port Authority and the underground underground station with a pipe bomb on his body to detonation. The man was wounded himself and three passers-by suffered minor injuries.
He was officially indicted on Tuesday.
