Dentist Ahmed Mahi Bulbul was stabbed to death by a professional mugging gang, AKM Hafiz Akhter, additional commissioner (detectives) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police told a press briefing.

Five people including the four arrestees gathered on Begum Rokeya Sarani to rob the dentist coming on an auto-rickshaw, according to the detectives.

On Sunday, when the auto-rickshaw carrying Bulbul reached Kazipara Begum Rokeya Memorial in front of Navana Showroom, the five muggers intercepted the vehicle and attempted to snatch his valuables, said the official.

At one point, the muggers stabbed the doctor as he resisted the mugging.

Later, he was rushed to Al-Helal Hospital first and then to Suhrawardi Medical College and Hospital where doctors declared him dead.
