'Arms trader' arrested with pistol, ammo

Detectives arrested two persons, including an alleged arms trader, with a pistol and 200 bullets in Chattogram city's Bahaddarhat area early yesterday.

The arrestees are Mohiuddin Shiblu, 39, from Hathazari upazila; and Enamul 35, from Natore.

Abu Bakkar Siddique, additional deputy commissioner (ADC) of the Detective Branch (port) of Chattogram Metropolitan Police, said they were arrested in a flat at Khatiber Hat.

“A German-made pistol, two magazines and 200 bullets were seized from their possession,” said the ADC.

Deputy Commissioner (DC) (Port) of DB SM Mostain Hossain said Shiblu, a Dubai expatriate, runs a veil shop and his arms trade there.

“He tried to sell the firearm and ammunition to a criminal,” said the DC.

ADC Bakkar said Shilbu collected the pistol from India and the arrestees were waiting to hand it over to a customer in exchange for Tk 6 lakh.

“We gleaned information about the buyer, whom we are still looking for,” he said.
