Muggers shot a man and took away Tk 30 lakh from him in broad daylight in the capital's Mirpur-2 yesterday.
With chest injuries, Mujibur Rahman, 40, a land broker, was immediately taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital from where he was transferred to the National Institute of Diseases of the Chest and Hospital.
Around 4:00pm, Mujibur and his cousin Anayet Khan were walking towards a nearby bus stand to go to Khilkhet, Anayet told reporters at DMCH.
Suddenly, two youths appeared there. One snatched Mujibur's bag containing the money while another pointed a firearm at his chest. Within a few seconds, the armed mugger shot him, he said. Locals started shouting while the culprits hurriedly ran to another accomplice who was waiting with a motorcycle near the spot, he said, adding that later they sped away towards Mirpur-1.
Mohammad Shakhawat Hossain, assistant commissioner of Mirpur Zone of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said they were investigating the incident.
