Most of the lamp posts of Dhaka city don't function properly, which is why city dwellers who walk on the footpaths at night easily become victims of the muggers." 

The police official continued: "However, in addition to surveillance of  the marked areas, we are creating awareness among the bus terminal authorities.

"Earlier this (Saturday) morning, a woman died after a snatching attempt in front of a bus counter at the Mugda area of Dhaka. We will investigate the death, and interrogate the arrestee to find out about the gang."
