Rapid Action Battalion members have nabbed a ringleader and six members of a carjackers' gang from Dhaka and Sylhet.
The elite force also seized seven stolen cars and one motorcycle during the drives, said Captain Maksudul Alam, assistant director of Rab’s Legal and Media Wing.
Ringleader Abdul Alim and his two associates -- Al-Amin Islam Rubel and Jashim Uddin – were held on Friday while Md Bachchu Miah, Shohag Miah, Md Imran Hossain Shamim and Ajam Khan were detained early today.
Rab conducted the drives after receiving a complaint from one Abdullah Al Mamun saying that his car was stolen from Mirpur area in the capital on July 8.
One of the seven cars, which have been seized by the Rab members, was of Mamun, the Rab official said.
Earlier, the seven suspects were held for committing the same crime, he added.
