Mob beats 2 ‘robbers’ dead in Narsingdi

An angry mob beat two escaping "robbers" to death in Narsingdi's Shibpur upazila early yesterday.

Among  the dead is Sohel Mia, 30, a resident of Kamalpur village in  Kishoreganj's Kuliarchar upazila. The identity of the other deceased  couldn't be confirmed immediately.

Quoting villagers, Inspector  (investigation) Abul Kalam of Shibpur Model Police Station said a group  of 10-15 robbers, armed with local weapons, robbed cash and gold  jewellery from the house of one Harun in the upazila's Joynagar village  around 1:30am.

Alerted by night guards about the fleeing robbers,  a group of locals in the neighbouring Murgiber village intercepted them  around 3:30am. At one state, a fight broke out between the villagers  and robbers.

As the villagers were just about to have cornered the robbers, all but three of them escaped.

The villagers beat up the three, leaving two of the them dead on the spot and the other badly injured.

Police  later went to the spot, recovered the two bodies and detained injured  Manik, a resident of West Abdullahpur in Kishoregonj's Kuliarchar  upazila. He was sent to Narsingdi Sadar Hospital before being referred  to Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

The police inspector said deceased Sohel was accused in several cases, including some of murder.
