'Two RAB members were also injured in the gunfight'

Two suspected criminals were killed in a gunfight with members of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) at Shipahipara in the Sadar upazila of Munshiganj on Tuesday.

The deceased were identified as Khasru Miah alias Lengra Khasru, 37, and Sumon alias Kana Sumon, 35, ofthe Ballalbari village of the Sadar upazila.

Based on a tip-off, a RAB team conducted a narcotics drive in Shipahipara. Sensing the presence of the elite force, the “criminals” opened fire at them, forcing the RAB members to fire back in self-defence triggering a gunfight, said Enayet Hossain police superintendent of RAB 11.

At one stage, Khasru and Sumon were caught in the line of fire while fleeing from the scene and died on the spot, said the RAB official.

Two RAB members were also injured in the gunfight, he said.

They were sent to Munshiganj General Hospital and later, transferred to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).

The RAB team recovered two pistols, five bullets and 39 yaba pills from the spot.
