Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) nabbed 82 members of doping, mugging and teenage gangs from different parts of the capital on Monday night.

A team of RAB-3 arrested them with 68 mobile phone sets, 35 injections of pethidine, 20 switch gear knives and some other things.

Commanding Officer (CO) of RAB-3 Lt Col Arif Mohiuddin Ahmed revealed the information at a press briefing in the capital on Tuesday.

Of the 82, two members of a teenage gang were held from Demra, five ‘dopers’ from Mugda, four from Demra, three ‘muggers’ from Hatirjheel, six from Tejgaon Industrial Area, 13 from Jatrabari, nine from Wari, three from Khilgaon, two from Sabujbagh, nine from Paltan, five from Motijheel, two from Shahbagh and six from Shahjahanpur, said the officer.

They waylaid common people and robbed them of their cash and valuables at gunpoint, he said. They became desperate during Iftar and after Sehri time, he said. The officer hoped that the arrest of the ‘criminals’ would help Eid shoppers to do the shopping safely.
