Police arrested 10 members of the notorious Bangla Group in connection with the killing

Police have said the killing of a 16-year-old boy in Dhaka’s Rayer Bazar was the result of teenage gang-violence.

The deceased, Yasin Arafat, was a member of Love Lane gang, Hazaribagh police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Ekram Ali Mia said.

After a primary investigation, OC Ekram told Dhaka Tribune: “Teenagers who stabbed him [Yasin Arafat] to death were the members of the notorious Bangla Group gang."

“The group was involved in a conflict with Love Lane gang after its leader Shaikat was beaten by the members of the latter.”

Police arrested 10 members of the Bangla Group Sunday night and early Monday after a case was filed with Hazaribagh police station. 

The arrested gang members have been produced before a Dhaka court. 

These violent teenage gang groups are based in Mohammadpur, Beribadh, Rayer Bazar, Nimtoli, Rana Bekarir Goli, Hazaribagh, etc, said police.

OC Ekram said: “These groups typically do not reign in one particular neighbourhood. They move from place to place. They work in shops, tea-stalls, and market places, etc.”

The Bangla Group has more than 50 members, he said. “They pull together at night after markets, tea-stalls are closed.” 

Police were trying to hunt down more suspected individuals who are believed to have been members of these teenage gangs.

On late Saturday night, Yasin Arafat was stabbed to death when he was returning home after work in a tea-stall. Deceased Arafat was  son of Munsur Ahamed of Begumganj upazila, Noakhali.
