Students in the grip of robbers in Howre, rescued by 999 number

14 college-university students saved themselves from robbers by calling 999.

Last Thursday (August 18) after 12 o’clock in the night, the police rescued them from Howar and brought them safely to Kishoreganj. Among them, 12 are students of Dhaka University and two are students of Gurudayal Government College.

Kishoreganj Naval Police Outpost sources said that after noon on Thursday, the 14 students went for a walk on the All Weather Road in Howar. They hired a trawler from Balikhla in Karimganj and went down to Mithamain and roamed on Allweather road. On their way back from there in the evening, the trawler carrying them got stuck near Hasanpur bridge and Dubi village around 9 pm due to strong winds. Despite their best efforts, the students could not float the trawler carrying them. At that time, a group of robbers surrounded them. The robbers began to prepare for the attack by throwing torch light from all sides. Then one of the students called 999 and asked the police for help in rescuing them. The matter was reported to the naval police outpost in Karimganj.

It was further informed that after a police team led by Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Mohammad Enamul Haque of Khadnighat Naval Police Station reached the spot quickly, the bandits were chased away from the area. The trawler was later floated by a combined effort. They reached Balikhla around 12 pm with everyone. The police delivered them safely to a hotel in Kishoreganj around 1 am.

In this regard, when journalists contacted a student of Dhaka University on Friday, he confirmed the truth of the incident. However, he did not agree to say anything in detail.

Another student, on condition of anonymity, said that they did not go on the trip without telling their family members. There were some female students in their group. They want to keep the matter a secret, fearing that if the matter is made known, there may be pressure from the students’ families. This is why they are not saying anything to the media.

Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Mohammad Enamul Haque said, “I immediately went to the spot with four constables after receiving the news that a group of students were trapped in Howar. Sensing the presence of the police, the bandits who surrounded the students fled. At this time, two students who fell into the water were rescued.
