A suspected top criminal has been killed in a reported gunfight between two gangs of criminals, over establishing their authority in a Gangni upazila region in Meherpur.

The incident occurred at the Kasba-Kochuikhali field of the upazila around 2am on Saturday.  

The deceased is Monirul Islam, who has nine cases filed against him; including for murder, extortion, and robbery.

Police have recovered a pistol and a round of bullets from the spot.

Gangni police station Officer-in-Charge Md Obaidur Rahman said, acting on a tip-off that  shooting was taking place, a police team responded to the scene.

Realizing that police were present, the criminals fled, leaving the bullet-riddled body of Monirul behind. He was then taken to Gangni Hospital, where the on-duty doctor, MK Reza, declared him dead. Later, his body was taken to the police station.

He further said Monirul was one of the top criminals of the district.
