An unidentified robber was killed in a gunfight with police in Jhenaidah early Friday.
Kaliganj Thana officer-in-charge (OC) Aminul Islam said a gang of robbers were planning to commit robbery on Jessore-Kaliganj highway in Barobazar Pirojpur’s Karaitala area of the district around 3:30am.
Sensing the presence of police, the robbers opened fire, forcing them to retaliate, triggering a 'gunfight'. Two police members also injured in the gunfight.
The law enforcers also recovered a shutter gun, five hand bombs and other weapons from the spot, the OC added.
