Four persons boarding on two motorcycles arrived at the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's court late Sunday morning (November 20) and snatched two militants from police custody sprayed chemicals in the eyes of a police constable. They left the court premises with the two militants– Mainul Islam Shamim and Abu Siddique Sohel.
