Three suspected robbers were killed in a lynch-mob attack at Shohadia village in Sreepur upazila early Saturday.
Of the deceased, one was identified as Nurul Islam, 27, a resident of the village while the identity of the others could not be known immediately.
Local people said a gang of robbers, numbering 10-12, stormed Gilasohor village at about 3:00 am.
Sensing the presence of the gang, local people chased them up to neighbouring Shohadia village and caught three of them while others managed to flee.
Later the villagers gave them a severe thrashing, leaving the trio dead on the spot.
Mohsinul Kader, officer-in-charge of Sreepur Police Station, said being informed by locals, police recovered the bodies and sent those to Sadar hospital morgue. –UNB, Gazipur
