‘Robber’ killed in ‘gunfight’

A suspected robber was killed in a ‘gunfight’ with members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) at Satchungipar in Sreepur upazila of Gazipur district early Sunday.

The deceased was identified as Parvez Ahmed,  ringleader of inter-district robber gang. Pervez was wanted in 23 criminal cases, said Mushfiqul Rahim Tushar, assistant director of Rab-1 (media), reports UNB.

Tipped off, a team of Rab-1 conducted an anti-narcotics drive in the area around 1 am.

Sensing the presence of the Rab personnel, Parvez and his two associates opened fire on Rab men, forcing them to fire back. At one stage, Pervez was caught in the line of fire and died on the spot while the two others managed to flee the scene.

The elite force members recovered one pistol and some Yaba pills from the spot
