After committing the loot, they threw the victim on the road near the Tajpur Central Jail and fled.

While returning home when he stopped at a shop, three persons posing themselves as police officials came in a car and bundled him into the vehicle. When he asked them the reason behind the same, the suspects said they were taking him to the Police Division 4. “Instead of taking me to the police station, they took me towards the Tajpur road where they pointed a sharp weapon at me and looted Rs 300 and a mobile phone from me. Afterwards, the suspects threw me on the road and fled. Later, I lodged a complaint. After probe, the police registered a case and arrested the accused on Wednesday,” he said.
