A university professor was mugged and shot by unidentified miscreants in the capital’s Mohammadpur area in broad daylight yesterday afternoon.

Parimol Kanti Biswas, professor of Agronomy at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, was shot in front of Dhaka Residential Model School and College around 1pm. Tk7.7 lakh was snatched from him at that time, said Officer in-Charge of Mohammadpur police station Azizul Haque.

Vice-chancellor of the university Mohammad Shadat Ulla said the mugging happened when Parimol was returning from the Mohammadpur post office after receiving the money.

Critically injured, professor Parimol was taken to Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital.

Inspector Jaan-e-Alam said they had talked to the victim and visited the scene but the miscreants could not be identified yet.
