2 snatchers caught red-handed in Ctg
Two snatchers were caught red-handed while they were trying to take away over Tk one lakh from a person inside a bank here yesterday afternoon.
Angry mob gave a good beating to the criminals identified as Abul Hossain, 32, and Sharif Mia, 30, and later handed them over to the police.
Sources said Kazi Jahid Hossain, junior accounts officer of Wall-Mart Super Store at Agrabad, along with two other officials drew money worth Tk 132,670 from Standard Chartered Bank in Agrabad C/A at around 1:00pm and went to the nearby branch of Prime Bank to deposit the money.
Witnesses said when Jahid carrying a bag full of money stood in a line of the depositors in the bank, both the snatchers stood just behind him in guise of a depositor.
Jahid told The Daily Star that as the snatchers managed to cut the bag from behind and tried to flee after taking out the money, he sensed it and tried to catch them.
Security guards and other clients at the bank came forward and gave the snatchers a good beating before handing them over to the police.
A case was filed with Double Mooring Police Station in this connection.
