Uttara cops open fire at check post
Uttara police shot three rounds at a car yesterday noon when it beat a Jasimuddin Road checkpost and sped off, starting a four-kilometre chase.
Four persons from the car later fled on foot after ditching it on Road 9/C, Sector 5.
The vehicle hit several cars, rickshaws and rickshaw-vans while the four inside hurled brick chips at law enforcers during the chase, Uttara West Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Ali Hossain Khan told The Daily Star. There is no report of anybody getting hurt.
The Uttara east police shot at the car first at a check point when the car sped off ignoring their signal to stop. Hot on their trail, police shot two more rounds at the car as the chase went on through crowded, narrow roads, said Uttara East Police Station OC Abu Bakar Miah. He said they were now trying to find the car's owner.
The roads and buildings along the chase route were being searched for the four and any video footage, said police.
