DHAKA, Dec 29, 2017 (BSS) – Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB)-2 arrested five members of a kidnapping gang, who carried out their crimes posing as members of detective branch (DB) of police, from Gazipur Chowrasta area last night (Thursday).
The arrestees are Md Alauddin Ali, 35, Md Nayan Mollah, 28, Md Khokon Dhali, 30, Md Altaf Hossain, 38, and Md Kawsar Mondal, 25.
Rab recovered a foreign-made pistol, two magazines, three bullets, three jackets of DB men, a walkie-talkie set and a car from their possessions.
“They were sitting inside their vehicle to rob a man, who was supposed to cross the point with money drawn from the bank. Our team arrested the kidnappers red handed by conducting a sudden raid in the area,” Commander Mufti Mahmud Khan, director of RAB legal and media wing, told newsmen at a press briefing today.
The RAB official said the criminals used to prey on people carrying money after drawing from banks, money exchange traders, gold traders and shop owners.
“They used to rob the people and throw them out from running vehicle,” Khan added.
RAB is set to hand the alleged criminals to Gazipur police tonight after completing their primary interrogation. A case will be filed by RAB in this connection.
