 Infamous forest robber gang ‘Master Bahini’ 
will formally surrender on Tuesday.

Nine members of the gang, including ringleader Mostafa Sheikh alias 
Kader Master, 46, will surrender their arms and bullets to Home 
Minister Asaduzzaman Khan in Mongla in the afternoon.

Six other gang members are Mohammad Sultan Khan, 58, Mohammad Sohagh 
Akon, 37, Mohammad Fazlu Sheikh, 35, Mohammad Solaiman Sheikh, 28, 
Mohammad Shahin Sheikh, 28, and Mohammad Sumon Sarker, 34.

Earlier, the robber gang was scheduled to surrender on Sunday. 
However, the formal surrender was postponed as the home minister 
could not attend the programme due to inclement weather.

Sources said Mostafa hailing from Rampal upazila in Bagerhat district 
formed the gang ‘Master Bahini’ several years ago.

They used to attack trawlers of fishermen, Bawali (golpata and wood 
cutters) and Mawali (honey collectors) and abduct fishermen for 
ransom in deep forests of the Sundarbans.
