On information that a gang of eight to ten robbers was committing robbery at Boilor in the upazila early hours of today, a team of detectives rushed to spot, said Syed Nurul Islam, superintendent of Mymensingh Police.

Local people caught one of the “robbers” red-handed and beat him to death before the members of Detective Branch of police reached the scene. However, the other robbers fled the scene boarding two pickup vans, said the SP.
