This paper is on the two parameter Laplace type Bimodal distribution. After discussing distributional properties, order statistics were developed and discussed. Inferential aspects were discussed and estimates of the parameters were obtained through Method of Moments and Maximum Likelihood Estimation techniques. Minimum unbiased estimator of the location parameter and best linear unbiased estimator of the location and scale parameter were also obtained.
