Muggers shot a businessman and snatched away Tk 8,500 from him in Bangshal area of Dhaka on Sunday midnight.

Injured Shukkur Ali, 44, a resident of Homna upazila of Cumilla district, and a businessman at Banghal Alubazar, is now undergoing treatment at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

Shukkur said three muggers intercepted him when he was returning home by a rickshaw after ending business work in front of Star Bakery and started beating the rickshaw puller. Later, they snatched away Tk 8,500 from his pocket and a gold chain from his neck.

"When I pulled one of them from behind while escaping, another mugger shot me and then, they all fled the scene by a motorcycle", said Shukkur.

However, the businessman managed to come to the hospital alone, he added.

Confirming the matter, Bangshal Police Station officer in-charge (OC) BM Shahin Fakir said the muggers shot on left side of Shukkur's chest.

However, the physicians informed that he is now out of danger, the OC added.
