On Tuesday, the video was posted on a social media page of the batallion force. People were requested to provide information about the suspects.

Nine Italians, seven Japanese, two Bangladeshis, an Indian girl, and a Bangladeshi-origin US citizen as well as two police officials were among the 22 people killed in the attack.

The IS terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Bangladeshi politicians have blamed “homegrown” Islamist terrorists.
