A mobile court of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), in a drive, has arrested 17 members of a teenage gang from Dhaka’s Rayer Bazar area.

The mobile court, led by RAB Executive Magistrate Mohammad SarwarAlam, sent the gang members to Tongi Kishore Unnayan Kendra (juvenile correction centre) in Gazipur for a year on Saturday night.

RAB also seized local weapons and 90 pieces of yaba from their possession.

Magistrate SarwarAlam said the ‘Star Bond’ gang offenders were involved in hijacking and selling drugs.

“They were mostly being used for political purposes," he said, adding that a few members of the gang are still on the run.

The RAB drive ended around 11:30pm on Saturday.
