Police arrested seven people with a firearm, alcohol and deer hides from Khilgaon in the capital on Sunday.

A team of Sabujbagh Police Station held them and handed over to Khilgaon Police Station.

The arrestees were Babu Mandal, 48, Humayun Kabir, 42, Monir Hossain, 50, Babul Hossian, 46, Mamun Ahmed, 45, Nilufa Yasmeen Nipa, 25, and Musammad Sathi, 20.

Muradul Islam Murad, officer-in-charge of Sabujbagh Police Station, said on Saturday, some miscreants fired at Jubo League leader Saiful Islam, 35, leaving him bullet injured. A team of the police station conducted a raid at a house in Khilgaon, suspecting that the accused in the Jubo League leader’s attempt-to-murder case were staying there. 

The policemen arrested them and seized two bottles of alcohol, a firearm, 16 bullets, two walkie-talkies and four deer hides from them.

As they were not accused in the case, they were handed over to the Khilgaon Police Station, he said. 

Farukul Alam, officer-in-charge of Khilgaon Police Station, told the Daily Sun that three cases were filed against the arrestees.
