Three masked robbers entered their residence on the first floor of a six-storey building at Arjetpara around 3:30am by breaking the grills of a balcony, Majharul Islam, officer-in-charge of Tejgaon Police Station, told The Daily Star.
The bandits attacked the trio with sharp weapons and shot the brothers when they attempted to catch the robbers, the OC said.
They left the scene immediately after the attack, firing two more shots outside, said the neighbours.
“We do not have any personal enmity with anyone,” said the victims’ mother.
The robbers dismantled the cords of the TV, but they did not make it away with them, she added.
Family members assume more robbers were waiting outside their home.
