Motorcycle-riding muggers have shot a housewife and snatched away her purse and gold chain near Rajdhani Super Market in Dhaka’s Tikatuli area.
Shahida Akhter, 26, a resident of Wari, was shot under the knee-cap on her right leg and is now attending treatment in a privately-run hospital in the capital.
Dhaka Medical College Hospital’s police camp in-Charge Bachchu Mia told The Daily Star that the incident took place around 10:00pm last night.
“Two muggers on a motorcycle tugged Shahida’s bag when she was on a rickshaw. When she resisted, they shot her, took her purse and gold chain,” he said.
She first took treatments at Dhaka Medical College Hospital and was later shifted to another hospital in Dhaka.
