Man wounded in gunfight with RAB in city
A man was wounded in an alleged gunfight with Rapid Action Battalion
on the outer circular road in the capital's Shahjahanpur
|Alleged gunfight or execution?|
|Good luck finding that on a map...|
early on Friday.
| *shrug* It's on the N5, the Dhaka-Bogra highway, south of Bogra and a few blocks from the Majhira cantonment. |
Critically injured Altaf Hossain alias Sagar, 38, was rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital at about 2:45am, hospital sources said.
|After dark, of course, so that the RAB could break the Ramadan fast prior to commencing the night's work...|
As his condition deteriorated, he was rushed to National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases in the capital's Sher-e-Bangla Nagor.
Hospital sources said two bullets entered his throat and shoulder.
In a press statement, RAB,-3 claimed that having received information,
|Hey Doc, check for the one behind his ear...|
they set up a check-post on the outer circular road in front of the New Al Madia Hotel.
|Another 5 lakh to Mahmoud the Weasel...|
Violating the signal to stop,
|Try finding that in the Michelin guide...|
a red car apparently opened two rounds of fire at law enforcers.
|"Hey! You! [bang] [bang] [KABOOM] Stop!"|
RAB allegedly fired in retaliation, the statement said.
|"It's the RAB, Mohammad! Open senseless fire!"|
Officers arrested Altaf and another Mohammad Masum, 29, as they tried to escape by leaving the car behind.
|"Sergeant Chaudray! Are they actually shooting at us?"|
"Sir! [stamp] Yes sir!"
"Kill them, if you please, Sergeant."
RAB searched the car and seized two pistols, five magazines, 10 bullets and three bottles of Phensedhyle and Tk 16,500.
|Tried hoofing it out on curly-toed slippers and left the roadster? Brilliant boys...|
RAB quizzed Masum
|So the perps left the roadster with the weapons, cash and drugs. Even more brilliant...|
and based on his statement,
|"Sergeant, you might go easy on those pliers, I do believe he wants to talk."|
seized two more magazines, six bullets and 37 Phensedhyle bottles.
|"Anything! I'll tell you anything! Just stop doing that!"|
RAB also recovered forged notes worth Tk one lakh and Tk 8,80,000 cash, the statement said.
|"Dude, you just narc'd my stash!"|
Shahjahan police station duty officer, Kamal Uddin told New Age that they had heard about the incident but RAB officially had not informed them.
|The forged notes came from Pakistan, obviously...|
|And won't, seeing as then they'd have to split the cash and the pills...|
