Teenaged gang members sent to correction centres

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka
Teenaged gang members sent to correction centres

A Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) mobile court yesterday arrested 17 members of a teenage gang from the Rayer Bazar area of the city. The mobile court, led by RAB executive magistrate Mohammad Sarwar Alam, sent 16 gang members to Tongi Kishore Unnayan Kendra (juvenile correction centre) for one year. Barring one, all if them are aged between 14 and 17 years. The gang members were imprisoned one-year for consuming drugs, participating in mugging cases and triggering clashes.

Sarwar Alam told the media that they were arrested during a 24-hour drive in Dhaka’s Rayer Bazar area starting from 11:30am on Saturday. “They are members of the a teen gang locally known as Star Bond Group. All of them are drug addicts and are involved in mugging and snatching,” he said. “They are mostly being used for political purposes. A few of them are still on the run," he added.

“There has been a longstanding conflict between Star Bond and Molla Rabbi Group, Last year, Molla Rabbi gang members killed a member of Star Bond Group and Friday was his death anniversary,” said Sarwar. Star Bond Group arranged a doa mahfil for the deceased member and uploaded a photo of the programme on Facebook. But members of Molla Rabbi Group posted smile emojis under the photo to agitate their rivals. This irked members of Star Bond Group who decided to take revenge on members of Molla Rabbi Group. But RAB personnel waylaid the gang members.
