"We arrested them from Talaimari, Binodpur and Mirzapur areas of the city," Officer-in-Charge of Motihar police station Hafizur Rahman said.
"The victim is Firoz Anam, a first year student of Economics department came under attack on the snatchers at around 8pm near Habibur Rahman hall on the campus.
He was treated at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital. Now he is out of danger," the OC added.
