Police have arrested two secondary school certificate (SSC) examinees over a gun attack on a police officer at a checkpoint in Chittagong.

The arrestees are Rakib and Prottoy, this year's SSC candidates.

Another youth of 19-year of age, Abdul Hakim, was held from the spot earlier.

Chittagong Metropolitan Police Deputy Commissioner (North) Abdul Waris confirmed the media about the information.

Pachshail Police Station Officer-In-Charge Mahiuddin Mahmud said the arrestees have given primary statement.

"Five juveniles aged between 18-19 opened fire on an assistant sub-inspector Abdul Malek while the cop barred them crossing the check post," said the OC quoting their statement.

Leaving their motorcycle on the spot, the accused fled the scene soon after the shooting on the cop, the OC added.

UNB said, the ASI sustained bullet on his leg and was undergoing treatment at Chittagong Medical College Hospital.
