Local civilians came running to the scene when they heard the screaming of passengers in their vehicle, they managed to catch the 3 perpetrators whose name was Suvas Das (18), Sobuj Das (22) and Shahin (19).
After they were caught they admitted they were Juboleague members and carried out these crimes under the order of Jamshed Uddin from Mahmudabad Village, the Former President of Juboleague at the Sitaku Degree College. They were told to vandalise and take money from people. Part of their group was the runaway Juboleague members; Fakirhat Alauddin, Alamgir and Hossain.
When asked why Jamshed had ordered them to do this, they responded by saying that BNP/Jamat Supporters vandalised Jamsheds shop on the 25th of October. Therefore as revenge they were told to carry out destruction by chanting BNP/Jamat slogans and get them blamed for it as well.
When Jamshed was questioned regarding this incident he denied the whole thing. He said that this was a lie BNP/Jamat had spread against him and denied knowing any of the detained criminals.
After the three attackers were detained by civilians on Wednesday at Sitaku, OC Mahbubul Alam of Sitaku district arrived at the scene to interrogate the detainees.
