Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) said on Friday that the force detained 21 members of a mugging gang from the city’s Motijheel, Paltan, Shahjahanpur and Tejgaon area, reports UNB.
The elite force also seized sharp weapons and sedatives from them during the drive on Thursday.
During primary interrogation, the alleged gang members said they usually hide in the alleys and mug pedestrians, rickshaw riders, and CNG-run auto-rickshaw passengers, brandishing sharp weapons. They also commit murder if anyone resists their bid. Legal steps are underway against the detainees, the official added.
