Rab sources said a patrol team of Rab-10 came under firing by a group of snatchers near Dayaganj bridge around 9:00pm, prompting them to fire back that ensued a gun battle between the Rab team and the criminals.
After the shootout, the Rab team found the two criminals--Russel, 20, and Johnny, 22, of South Jatrabari--with bullet injuries in their legs.
The injured were taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where they were undergoing treatment.
