According to his brother Nizam Uddin, a group of robbers swooped on his shop around 10pm local time.
Alam was run over by a car on the road outside his shop as he was chasing the robbers. Locals rushed him to the King Khalid University Hospital where doctors declared him dead.
The 35-year-old, who hailed from Comilla, is survived by wife and two children.
In the other incident reported from Dammam, a Bangladeshi construction worker Nur Islam died when a collapsed wall crushed him at a construction site on Monday.
