A suspected robber was killed in a lynch-mob attack at Tatarkandi village of Shibpur in Narsingdi early Friday.
The deceased was identified as Nurul Amin alias Nura 'Dacoit', 29, son of Mia Chan of Gubindi village.
Shibpur Police Station officer-in-charge (Investigation) Mominul Islam said a gang of 'robbers' swooped on the house of Soliman and took the house inmates hostage at gunpoint around 2:00am.
Sensing presence of the 'robbers', local people encircled the house and chased them.
At one stage, local people caught one of the 'robbers' and gave him a good thrashing, leaving him dead on the spot, while the others managed to flee the scene.
Nura was wanted in nine cases, including that of murder and robbery, said the OC.
