Two suspected robbers were lynched to death by an angry mob in Manikganj's Sadar upazila in the early hours of Thursday.
However, the identities of the deceased couldn’t be ascertained yet.
Police said three suspected robbers were caught red-handed by locals after they had barged into a house belonging to Yusuf Ali in the Banparil area of Hatipara.
"The locals thrashed the three so badly that two of them died on the spot. The injured robber is recuperating at a local hospital," a police officer said.
Abdur Rouf, officer-in-charge of Manikganj Sadar Police Station, said the bodies were sent to the Manikganj Sadar Hospital morgue for post-mortem.
"We will file an FIR in the case," he said.
