Police have arrested three people on Monday afternoon on charges of obstructing traffic on the Akhaura-Sultanpur road in Brahmanbaria. The detainees are Sadar Upazila Basudeb UP’s Abu Nahid Sohag, Kodda village’s Md. Shanu Mia and Md. Hassan Khalifa of the Radhanagar area of Akhaura municipal.
It is learned that the three culprits have been doing business for a long time by illegally dredging sand mounting in the middle of the Dhaka-Chattogram-Sylhet railway line on the east side of Titas Railway Bridge on Akhaura-Sultanpur road. Due to the excessive rain, that part of the road has been collapsed and the traffic became very risky. The victims informed the concerned administration and then they were detained at noon.
Akhaura Police Station OC Rasul Ahmad Nizami confirmed their arrest.
