The incident occurred early on Tuesday

A leader of banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) has been killed in a reported gunfight in Bogra’s Shibganj upazila.

The deceased, Khorshed alias Master alias Samil, 33, is the chief of JMB Bangladesh chapter. 

Bogra Sadar circle’s Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP-Media) Sanatan Chakraborty said they raided the upazila’s Tantipukur area, early on Tuesday, following a tip-off that a group of militants was gathering there. 

Upon seeing the police, the criminals opened fire—forcing law enforcement to fire back, triggering a gunfight, he said.

The majority of the alleged militants fled the scene. 

Police found Khorshed’s bullet-riddled body on the spot and rushed him to Shahid Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital, where doctors declared him dead. 

On his way to the hospital, Khorshed revealed his identity, ASP Sanatan said. 

Two police members who were injured during the gun battle are now undergoing treatment at the Bogra Police Hospital. 

The ASP added that police recovered: two firearms, three rounds of bullets, a machete, and a dagger from the spot. 

Two cases – one murder and the other under Arms Act – were filed with Shibganj police station on Tuesday morning.
