In the footage, it was also seen that the two militants who attacked the police at the check-post managed to escape as there was no other police officials near the area. A militant named Abir Rahman, a student of North South University, was killed during a shootout with the police while another militant Shafiul was arrested with injuries and later admitted to  Mymensingh Medical College Hospital. Shafiul was killed in a reported gunfight between his associates and a RAB team when he was being taken to Kishoreganj for further investigation.
