A security guard died at a city hospital after being drugged by a dope gang yesterday.

The victim Altaf Hossain, 50, was living with his family members at the capital’s Rajarbagh area and working as a security guard at a private company located in Elephant road. 

Sohag, son of the victim, told reporters that his father had come home from his workplace by a rickshaw around 10pm on Monday. As soon as he reached home, he fell unconscious and later on he gained sense on Tuesday afternoon. 

“After gaining sense he told us that a dope gang doping him took away his money while he was returning home.”  

Then, he was lying on the road unconsciously for around three hours. Later, a known person noticed him and helped him gaining conscious. He also hired a rickshaw so that he could reach home, he said. 

After his return, family members noticed that his condition was deteriorating and they took him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital yesterday morning where he died.  

Mozammel Haque, camp-in-charge of the DMCH police post, said the body had been sent to morgue for autopsy.
