They were arrested from their houses at Burimari in Patgram upazila between 12:00am and 6:00am today, our Lalmonirhat correspondent reports quoting police.

Of the five, three were named accused and two others were identified from video footages, said Suman Kumar Mohanta, officer-in-charge of Patgram Police Station.
