Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained eight members of a teen gang including the ringleader in the capital.
Acting on a tip-off, a team of RAB-2 raided the city’s Pallabi area on Wednesday night and nabbed the eight.
Some sharp weapons were also seized from them, the elite force said on Thursday.
The teen gang members were involved in crimes like mugging, robbery, eve-teasing and extortion, the RAB headquarters said in a release. Many of them are drug addicts, it said.
The alleged gang leader has been identified as Delwar Hossain alias Paltu, 35.
