Two killed in ‘gunfights’ in two districts
Two people were killed in ‘gunfights’ with the law enforcers in Bagerhat and Bogra districts on Thursday. Our Bagerhat correspondent said a notorious ringleader of a gang of forest robbers in the Sundarbans was killed in a gunfight with RAB 8 members in Sarankhola upazila, Bagerhat, in east Sundarbans. Deceased Bellal Mir, alias Blind Bellal, second-in-command of Shamsu Bahini, was killed in the morning, said police sources. The fighting ensued after smoke was seen rising up from a forest in an area patrolled by RAB 8. After the raid, RAB recovered five firearms and several rounds of ammunition. RAB 8 Deputy Commissioner Maj Adnan Kabir said: “The RAB 8 members were on patrol as part of their usual duty in the Shukhpara shoal area in the Sundarbans. They noticed smoke rising up out of the forest and started firing shots. After a half hour of exchanging gunfire, the shots eventually stopped, so the RAB team ventured in to inspect the area.” RAB found a dead body with gunshot wounds along with five firearms and 77 rounds of ammunition. Locals in the area identified the deceased as Bellal, Shamsur Bahini’s second-in-command. RAB said they would hand over the recovered firearms and ammunition and transfer In Bogra, the military chief of New JMB’s Rajshahi divisional unit was killed in a gunfight with police at Jamnagar village under Sherpur upazila, reported our correspondent. Aminur Islam alias Alam, 23, was the son of one Darul Huda of Rajshahi. “We detained Alam from Rajshahi Tuesday night and brought him here,” Sherpur OC Khan Mohammad Irfaan told the Dhaka Tribune. “His associates opened fire on us in a bid to snatch him when we were conducting a drive at Jamnagar village along with the detainee around 3am on Thursday.” In retaliation, police fired back, leaving Alam dead while the others managed to flee the scene. The OC claimed that they had recovered a pistol, three rounds of bullets and two magazines from the spot. On the other hand, a housewife and her six-month old daughter were strangled to death allegedly by her husband over a family feud at Khamar Ballamjhar village under Sadar upazila in the district, said our correspondent. The deceased were Nazma Begum, 30, wife of Samiul Islam and their daughter Shamima Khatun of the village. Confirming the news, Sadar police station officer in-charge Mehedi Hassan said the couple had an altercation over family problem on Wednesday night. Following morning, the neighbours found Nazma and their daughter dead at Samiul’s house and informed police. Police recovered the bodies and sent those to Gaibandha Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsy. Locals caught Samiul while trying to flee and handed him over to police, he added. A case was filed with Gaibandha Sadar police station in this connection.
