Abdullah, previously known as Provat Kumar Batul, is the son of one Chaiti Baul of Porahati village in the upazila.
A driver of a human hauler by profession, Abdullah used to sell timber dust as fuel from house to house in the locality.

A team of 30 counterterrorism members led by ADC Nazmul Hasan resumed the operation around 9:15am today under the code named “Southpaw” in presence of Deputy Inspector General of Khulna range Didar Ahmed.
The team recovered 17 containers of hydrogen peroxide, a 7.65 foreign made pistol, seven bullets, 15 to 16 jihadi books around 10:00am today….
