A rape accused has been killed in a “gunfight” with Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Chittagong.

The incident happened at Lohagara upazila early on Monday.

The deceased is Saiful Islam, 26, who was a sole accused—in a case filed with Lohagara police station—for raping a ninth-grader on April 12.

RAB 7 said a team of the elite force conducted a drive to arrest Saiful.

He added that upon seeing RAB, the associates of the accused opened fire, targeting the elite force. In defense, the RAB members fired back triggering a gunfight.

Later, Saiful's body was recovered from the spot.

Masuqur Rahman, assistant director of RAB 7 said: "Two firearms and 24 rounds of bullets were recovered and the dead body has been sent to Chittagong Medical College Hospital for autopsy."
