The policemen reportedly snatched Tk2.8 lakh from a businessman after falsely accusing him of carrying contraband drugs

Two policemen of Sitakunda Model police station have been arrested for reportedly mugging a businessman.

The errant policemen identified as Sub Inspector Saiful Alam and Constable Saiful Islam were arrested on Thursday night.

The duo was suspended from duty right after they were sued over Sunday’s incident.

The incident came to light when the victim lodged a case with the Sitakunda Model police station against two policemen and three informants.  

Confirming the matter, Chittagong Superintendent of Police (SP) SM Rashidul Haque said the two policemen were arrested for being charged with mugging a businessman.

He said: “A case has been filed and the arrested policemen have been produced before a court.” 

According to the case statement, the businessman identified as Abu Jafar came to Sitakunda from Gazipur on Sunday to buy a pick-up truck. 

As he was not able to buy the vehicle, he was waiting at the Shyamoli Bus counter in Sitakunda Sadar to return to Gazipur.

At that time, the two accused policemen arrived at the bus counter and picked up Jafar falsely accusing him of carrying contraband yaba pills. 

Jafar was then taken to Sitakunda General Hospital on suspicion of having yaba pills in his body and underwent an X-ray exam. 

In spite of not finding any yaba pills on him, the two policemen snatched Tk2.8 lakh and a mobile phone from Jafar’s possession.

As Jafar started crying when the two policemen were taking him back to the Shyamoli Bus counter, they threatened him by saying: “Do you want to live or do you want to die?” When Jafar pleaded for his life, the policemen directed him not to tell anyone about the incident.
