Pirates killed in ‘gunfight’ with RAB
Two members of a Sundarbans-based pirate gang have been killed in an alleged gunfight with the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Barguna. RAB 8 identified the two as Ataur Sardar, 25, and Rabiul Mali, 27. Ataur was the second-in-command of Hasan Bahini. The alleged gunfight took place in Padma village in Patharghata upazila on Monday morning. Six locally-made firearms, bullets and sharp weapons were reportedly recovered from the spot. Md Surat Alam, company commander of RAB 8, told the media that their team raided Majherchar on Baleshwar River as part of their regular drive to combat pirates. Members of the gang fired at RAB leading to a skirmish. After a while the pirate gang escaped the area leaving behind two bodies and firearms, he said. Two single barrel guns, four pipe guns, 39 bullets, and explosives, along with sharp weapons were recovered. The bodies have been handed over to Patharghata police station.
