Robber killed in Jhenaidah ‘gunfight’


A suspected robber was killed in a reported gunfight with the members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) at Bhaturia in Harikundu upazila on Tuesday night.


The deceased was identified as Amirul Islam Pocha, 43, a member of an inter-district robber gang.


Golam Morshed, assistant superintendent of Rab-6, said the elite force set up a check-post in the area. While passing through the check-post, a gang of robbers opened fire to Rab men forcing them to fire back in self-defence.


Later, the Rab members recovered the bullet-hit body of Pocha and sent to Harinakundu Upazila Health Complex.


They also recovered one shutter gun, two bullets and a sharp weapon from the spot.


The deceased was wanted in 13 cases including that of murder and robbery, said the Rab official, reports UNB.
