132 Sundarbans robbers surrender in 11 months

One hundred and thirty two Sundarbans robbers, including the chiefs of 12 gangs, surrendered during the last 11 months.

The robbers are returning to normal life by surrendering to the law enforcers due to the latter’s continuous drives in the region.

Notorious pirate gang ‘Master Bahini’ was the first to lay down their arms on May 31 last year. Other robbers followed their footprints by surrendering to the Home Minister. Twenty five robbers, including the chiefs of Alif and Kabiraj Bahini, were the latest to surrender to the home boss Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal in Patuakhali on April 29 with the view to return to normal life.

Surrendering of these robbers, who once established reign of terror in the Sundarbans and the Bay, has brought a sense of relief among the fishermen and bawalis (woodcutters of the Sundarbans).

Police said cases were filed against the surrendered robbers. Courts sent some of those robbers to jails while some were released on bail and leading a normal life.

Alif and Kabiraj gangs also surrendered 31 local and foreign made firearms and 1110 rounds of bullets, Rab sources said.

The Rab sources also informed that 11 robbers of Majnu and Ilias Bahini, 14 of Alam and Shanta Bahini, 13 of Sagar Bahini, 12 of Khokababu and Noa Bahini each, 20 of Jahangir Bahini and 15 members of Choto Raju Bahini surrendered by this time.

Local fishermen and bawalis said they were in constant panic of the robbers. The robbers do not let go anyone without ransom.

Surrendering of notorious Sundarbans robber gangs brought peace among them. “We expect other robber gangs also will surrender with their arms to the law enforcers and return to normal life.”unb
