An assistant sub-inspector of police was shot during a confrontation with persons suspected to be members of an outlawed leftist group.

ASI Nannu Mia, 42, was shot when he challenged a group of men in Sherpur’s Bhabanipur around Monday midnight, Sherpur police OC Humayun Kabir said.

The men were putting up posters in protest of a surrender ceremony of 595 members of outlawed leftist groups.

Nannu Mia was moved to Dhaka’s Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital soon after. Police were in the process of filing a case over the incident as this report was being filed.

OC Humayun said ASI Nannu Mia and two constables were patrolling in Bhabanipur area when they found the men postering the walls. When challenged, the men fired at the police and ran.

The posters and a newspaper called Ganajuddha were found from the spot, which led the police to suspect the men were from an outlawed leftist oufit.

Nannu Mia is now out of danger, the OC said.

Sherpur OC (Investigation) Bulbul Islam said one of the posters read: “Denounce the state-conspired staged surrender of 600 people in the name of revolutionary organizations in Pabna. Long live Marxism-Leninism.”

On Tuesday afternoon, 600 members of various outlawed leftist groups surrendered to authorities, giving up their weapons, in an event in Pabna attended by the home minister.

Police said drives were underway to apprehend the ASI’s attackers.
