Three RAB members were mobbed in Haripur market of Jaintapur
Three RAB members were mobbed in Haripur market of Jaintapur, Sylhet. The condition of two of them is said to be critical. The incident took place on Wednesday (November 9) at around 7:30 p.m. in front of Haripur Bazar Garuhat in Fatehpur Union No. 5 of Jaintapur Upazila. However, RAB could not immediately identify the attackers or recover any Indian illegal goods.
The injured RAB-9 members are soldiers Jahangir Alam and Mehedi Hasan. However, the name of the other member is not known.
It is known that some unscrupulous smugglers in the local area were carrying Indian illegal goods on pickup on Wednesday night. On the basis of such secret information, a white-clothed patrol of RAB-9 went on an operation to recover Indian illegal goods and was attacked by the miscreants of the smuggling syndicate. Two members of RAB-9 were seriously injured in that attack. Later, the locals called the attack a riot. Even before this, the members of RAB-9 were attacked in the same way several times. But due to not taking proper legal measures from the administration, one after the other incidents are happening. There is speculation. However, the demand of the local conscious circles is how these goods are supplied through Jainta-Gowainghat border area without the eyes of BGB-Police. And the cost of this has to be multiplied by the simple, simple people at the local level. According to many, the smuggling syndicates are emerging due to some money-hungry dishonest leaders of the law enforcement agencies.
Meanwhile, after receiving the news of the incident, the leaders of No. 5 Fatehpur Bazar Traders Committee and local dignitaries reached the spot and rescued the injured RAB-9 members and provided first aid to a local pharmacy. Later, other members of RAB-9 went and brought them for better treatment.
According to police and local sources, a team of RAB-9 conducted a raid in front of the cattle market inside Haripur Bazar to seize a large smuggled vehicle of Indian tea leaves and Nashir Bidi after receiving information from secret sources. Meanwhile, some local smugglers attacked them. After receiving the information about the attack, the Jaintapur Model Police Station rushed to the spot. Later, when other members of RAB-9 went to the spot, the traders closed their shops and went to a safe shelter out of fear.
Meanwhile, after receiving information about the incident, a high-level special team of RAB-9 visited the Haripur market around 11 pm and spoke to the business leaders of the local market committee about the incident. When the RAB officer who was visiting the spot was contacted, he said, I am at the spot. Investigation is going on, details will be informed later
Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Jaintapur Model Police Station Golam Dastgir Ahmed said that the police force was sent after receiving information about the incident. I received information that 3 RAB members were injured. Currently the market situation is calm.
