The Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) on Thursday arrested two people with arms and ammunition from the Tejgaon industrial area of the capital.

The arrestees were identified as Shahadat Hossain Saikat alias Bullet, and his associate Rubel. DB officials recovered one pistol, a shotgun, and ten bullets from their possession.

Later on Friday, a Dhaka court placed Bullet and Rubel on three day remand.

Confirming the matter, DB Senior Assistant Commissioner Sahadat Hossain told the Dhaka Tribune: “We received a tip-off that Bullet and his associates were gathering in the Tejgaon Polutechnic area on Thursday night. A DB team conducted a raid there and arrested Bullet and Rubel, though some of their associates managed to flee the scene.” 

He added that Bullet was wanted in a number of cases filed with various police stations, including the one in Dhanmondi. 

“Bullet led a professional mugging gang in the Karwan Bazar and Tejgaon areas. He also worked as a contract killer,” the senior assistant commissioner said.

This DB official also said they hope to learn more details about the gang in questioning.
