They would go to banks and post offices to con or steal money from customers

Two con men Redwan Talukder, 40, and Md Abidul Hasan alias Mintu Sheikh, 45, have been arrested from their hometown on Thursday.

They have stolen at least Tk2 crore in the last one and a half years by scamming customers at various banks and post offices in the country, including Islami Bank in Bashkhali, Sonali Bank in Jamalpur, Al-Arafah Bank in Rangpur, Agrani Bank in Rajshahi, and Gopalganj Post Office.

Cases have been filed against them in those police stations but this is the first time they got caught, they confessed to police.

Gopalganj police produced them in front of journalists on Friday afternoon.

Sub-Inspector of Gopalganj police station Mizanur Rahman said Redwan Talukder is from Uttar Patarchar village in Muladi upazila of Barisal and Md Abidul Hasan alias Mintu Sheikh is from Deyara Paschimpara village of Rupsha upazila of Khulna district.

He also said the two hijackers were arrested in separate raids at their hometowns using internet based technology.

According to a case at Gopalganj police station, customer Hemlata Biswas, 55, and her husband Suresh Chandra Biswas, 66, went to the Gopalganj main post office on September 6 to collect their matured savings certificates of Tk10 lakh and its profits. 

After receiving the Tk10 lakh in cash they put it in a bag and waited in line to collect the profits.That is when some members of the con ring surrounded them and dropped some money at their feet.

The couple got distracted by the money scattered at their feet when the fraudsters quickly fled with the bag of Tk10 lakh kept on the counter. 

Later on October 1, Suresh Chandra Biswas filed a case (No. 03) with Gopalganj police station.
