Army man killed in Siddhirganj: 3 muggers arrested

Three youths have been arrested in connection with the killing of an army man by stabbing at Siddhirganj in Narayanganj.

They were Jibon, Sumon and Jummon. They were arrested within 72 hours of the incident on Tuesday night. Police seized two knives used to kill the army man from their possession.

The arrested youths were professional muggers, said Siddhirganj police. There were several cases of mugging and drug dealing against them. Under the primary interrogation, the arrested persons admitted their involvement in the murder, police said.

Addressing a press briefing on Wednesday afternoon, Siddhirganj Police Station officer-in-charge (OC) Mashiur Rahman said Shahin Alam, a member of the Bangladesh Army, was going to his village home at Chandpur on a seven-day leave. On the way, he went his friend Habib's house at Hirajheel area in Siddhirganj to stay there at night. When he reached at Dosh Tola crossing near Bengal Pacific Pvt Limited area, three professional muggers appeared there and waylaid Shahin Alam coming by an autorickshaw. The muggers took moneybag, cash and mobile phone from Sipahi Shahin Alam. When he tried to resist the muggers, they swooped on Shahin Alam and started stabbing him one after another with knives.

Later, receiving information, Siddhirganj police went to the spot and took gravely injured Shahin Alam to the emergency department of local Pro-Active Hospital. As his condition started deteriorating quickly, he was rushed to the CMH in Dhaka by an ambulance where he succumbed at about 5:30am.

The OC further said following the murder of Shahin Alam, Siddhirganj police launched a drive and arrested the killers within 72 hours. Under the primary questioning, the arrested accused confessed their involvement in the murder.
