Journalist falls prey to doping gang

A journalist of a Bangla daily was doped by a group of muggers in the city on Thursday. 

The victim Samon Hossain, 37, a senior sports reporter of the daily Manabzamin, was admitted to Sir Salimullah Medical College Hospital in an unconscious state.

The muggers robbed him of cash and valuables.

Kazi Sumon, a colleague of the victim, said that Samon was returning to the capital from his native village at Khanpur in Narayanganj.

He was travelling on a bus of Shitol Paribahan, said Sumon.

The gang fed him sedative-mixed food at the vehicle, he added.

Samon got off at the stadium in Gulistan, entered the office of Sports Reporters Association around 3:15pm and lapsed into unconsciousness.
