Two alleged robbers were killed when a crude bomb hurled by the duo while mugging exploded in Chittagong city last night.
Shatya Gopal Bhoumik, who became victim of the muggers, was shot by the gang. Bhoumik rushed to Chittagong Medical College Hospital where he underwent an operation, reports our Chittagong correspondent.
Besides, six other people received splinter injuries during the incident. Morzina Akter, inspector (investigation) of Sadarghat Police Station, said the muggers riding a motorcycle waylaid Bhoumik at Majhirghat when he was returning home around 11:30pm.
