Verdict in dollar snatching case against cop on Sept 19

A Dhaka court yesterday set September 19 to pronounce judgment in a case filed over allegedly snatching 18,800 US Dollar by two including a cop in 2017.

August 19, 1019  was fixed for passing of the verdict, but Judge Devdas Chandra Adhikari reset the date as the judgment is yet to be prepared.

Of the two accused, one is suspended assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Alamgir Hossain of Uttara East Police Station and the other one is Masum Billah of village North Shimulia under Dohar Police Station of Dhaka district.

One Elias, owner of HS Money Exchange, filed the case in 2017. According to the case documents, a couple of men identifying themselves as members of detective branch of police, picked up Elias from Uttara Rajlakkhi area on April 4, 2017.  They blindfolded Elias and tried to snatch USD 18,800 from his possession.

As Elias screamed for help and locals started to rush the scene, the muggers had tried to drive the car on them. Locals managed to detain Masum and rescue Elias. In the primary interrogation of police, Masum said ASI Alamgir Hossain is one of their cohorts.
