The Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has arrested six suspected members of a carjacking gang along with stolen vehicles from Dhaka and elsewhere.

During drives conducted on Tuesday, the Detective Branch also recovered 11 stolen motorcycles, two CNG-run auto-rickshaws, five police uniforms, one pair of handcuffs and 20 sedative tablets from their possession.

The arrestees are Md Rafique, Md Manik, Md Abdul Alim, Md Hasan Mridha, Mohammad Ali and Md Chand Miah.

During primary interrogation, the arrestees revealed that they used to lift motorcycles and auto-rickshaws from Dhaka city and then sell them in different areas across the country, said DMP Deputy Commissioner (Media) Masudur Rahman on Wednesday.

Rafique and Manik used to steal the vehicles and sell them to Alim, who then sold them through his associates, including Hasan Mridha, after changing the engine and chassis numbers, the DC said.
