The main accused of a case over the rape of two cousins was killed in a reported gunfight in Chittagong on early Monday. 

Two more people accused in the rape case were arrested during the drive at the district’s Andarmanik village of Bhujpur under Fatikchhari upazila, reports BSS.

Moreover, a gun, a knife, and four bullets were also recovered from the spot, confirmed police.

The deceased was identified as Md. Helal Uddin, 30, son of Zafar Alam of Andarmanik village of West Bhujpur area.

Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah, Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Bhujpur police station, said that there were several cases filed against the deceased.
