Burglars take away pistol, cash from OC's house

Burglars made away with a loaded pistol, cash and other valuables from the house of the officer-in-charge of Sadar Police Station in Rajbari on Saturday.

According to Abul Khayer Fakir, some unknown people broke into his police station compound flat at around 3:00am and took away a pistol with nine bullets, two cell phone sets and Tk 6,000 when he was sleeping.

The intruders cut the toilet window grills for their business, he added.

"I fell asleep at about 1:00am, but woke up sensing something wrong," Fakir said.

As he searched the house, the police official found his belongings, all kept on the table, missing.

Local police held two persons yesterday morning suspecting their alleged link to the stealing. However, police declined to disclose their name.
