Mahbub Alam said: "The incident of murder took place over establishing supremacy in the area."

On February 12, a teenage boy named Hasan Mia was killed in Mugda and detectives apprehended seven teenagers who belonged to a gang "Bandage" led by one Tanvir, he said. 

The teenage gangs remained inactive during the Covid-19 lockdown, the DB official said, but they are becoming active now while police are working on the matter. 

"Mainly, children from the low-income families are involved with the teen-gang culture."

He added that a study on juvenile delinquency is underway.
