Muggers impersonating as law enforcers reportedly snatched Tk 40 lakh from two staff of a readymade garment factory in the city's Uttara on Wednesday afternoon.
The criminals "in guise of the members of detective branch (DB) of police" reportedly looted the money from the two officials of 'Tokio Mode' on Road No. 12 in Uttara's Sector-1 around 2:00pm, said Rasel Howlader, an official of the factory.
The accountant of the garment factory Sayeed Mahmud Al-Firoz and his driver were inside the car, he said.
