Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested seven persons for their alleged link with militancy conducting overnight drives in city's suburban areas.
Of them, four left home in Cumilla and other parts of the country.
Commander Khandaker Al Moin, director of the Legal and Media Wing of RAB confirmed the matter.
The anti-crime force has been able to arrest them identifying their location based on continuous vigil after seven school-going students left their Cumilla home on August 23 saying that they are heading to coaching centre and subsequent incidents of leaving home of some other youths, he added.
RAB will officially disclose the matter at a press conference at its Kawran bazaar media center later.
