A suspected mugger and an official of a private company sustained bullet injuries when the official was being mugged by a group in the city's Gulistan area in broad daylight on Saturday, reports UNB.
The injured--Sujauddin Talukdar, 38, executive officer of Navana Engineering Ltd, and suspected snatcher Jahedul Islam Shohag, 40 -- were admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
A group numbering 4/5 swooped on Sujauddin while he was going to Nawabpur from Motijheel with a bag containing valuable documents including some cheques and took away the bag after shooting in his left knee, he told journalist.
Sayed Ali, officer-in-charge of Paltan Model Police Station, said initially it was revealed that Shohag is a member of a mugging group.
However, Shohag said that he is a truck driver from Boalmari in Faridpur and has come to the capital for his vehicle's documents.
He claimed that he has no connection with the mugging.
