Violence of juvenile gangs is increasing in Chattogram city. A variety of crimes are being organized by these uprooted teenagers in the city. There are several cases in different police stations in the name of many. However, due to being torn apart, these criminals were easily released on bail.

Starting from kidnapping and abduction, many innocent lives are being lost for them. According to the Chattogram Metropolitan Police (CMP), at least 10 people have been killed by juvenile offenders in the last year. There have been hundreds of cases.

These gangs dominate in ten to twelve points of the city. They have recently been accused of snatching on flyovers in a special way. Later, when the activities of the police increased, they took position in Laldighi area from Kadamtali, BRTC, New Market, Amtali, Chawkbazar.

In many cases, these teenagers are committing these crimes under the umbrella of influential people and the ruling party. Due to their political asylum, the locals are also terrified of their violence. They fear to speak out against their crimes.

It is learned that last year, the police had compiled a list of 535 juvenile gang members in 16 police stations in the city and a list of 47 alleged godfathers or elder brothers providing shelter. However, no visible progress has been made in this regard.

However, this time the CMP commissioner has instructed the 145-bit officer to make a new list of area-based teen gangs and big brothers behind the scenes.

CMP Police Commissioner Saleh Mohammad Tanvir said, “The teenagers have not yet reached adulthood. We have collected information on those who are misleading them.”

CMP Commissioner (North) Bijay Basak said, “The court asked him to take him to the correctional facility after he was sent to court. We took him there too. After a while they get release and actually return to the same criminal activities.”
