An angry mob has beaten two suspected robbers to death at Kaliganj upazila in Gazipur.

The two were part of a gang that allegedly tried to rob a house in Nagri Union’s Rathora village at around 1:30am on Wednesday, said Kaliganj Police OC Md Abu Bakar Mia.

The dead men were between 35 to 40 years of age. Police could not immediately reveal details of their identities.  

A gang of seven to eight armed robbers attacked one Rabeya Begum’s house at night, reports bdnews24 citing OC Abu Bakar.

“Rabeya's neighbours rushed to her house after hearing screams of her family members. They got hold of the two and beat them to death.” 

Police have recovered the bodies of the suspects, both of whom died on spot. Two large knives were recovered from the scene, added the police official.

“We’re trying to find out who these men were.”
