4 killed in ‘gunfights’ in two districts

Staff Reporter

Four alleged criminals, including three drug peddlers, were killed in separate ‘gunfights’ with law enforcers in Jashore and Mymensingh yesterday. Police said three people killed in an alleged shootout with Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Jashore’s Abhaynagar. The diseased were identified as Abul Kalam, 46, Milon Kasari, 39, and Habibur Rahman, 36. They were killed in a shootout with RAB-6 in the Bagda field area early on Saturday, said Salauddin Sikdar Additional Superintendent of Police, Jashore. Police official said the bodies have been taken to Jessore Sadar Hospital for post-mortem examinations.

RAB members identified the deceased as drug peddlers, who are all from Noapara village in the Abhaynagar upazila, said Zahid Hasan, commanding officer of RAB 6.

RAB officials said a team of RAB set up a check post on the road around 9pm on Friday. Three motorcycles passed through the check post ignoring the signal of RAB. When the RAB officers tried to stop them sensing danger, the trio opened fire on the elite force members.

RAB team also fired back that triggered a gunfight, the RAB official said. The three alleged criminals were hit by bullets during the gunfight.

They were taken to Abhaynagar upazila Health Complex where doctors declared them dead, said the RAB official.

In Mymensingh, a murder accused was killed in a gunfight with police in Atharobari area of Ishwarganj upazila.

Deceased Emon was son of Nurul Islam and a resident of Bonwa village in Nandail upazila, confirmed Qamrul Islam, officer-in-charge (OC) of Nandail Police Station.

The OC said a team of Nandail police arrested Emon in connection with a case filed for killing an auto-rickshaw driver Rana on May 17.

A team of Detective Branch of police conducted a drive around 2:30am along with Emon for arresting other accused in the case, said the OC.

Emon's associates opened fire on police, prompting them to retaliate that triggered the ‘gunfight’. Emon suffered bullet on his chest during the gunfight, the OC said.

Later, he was rushed to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital where doctors declared him dead, he added.

Emon was accused in several cases, the OC said. Sub-Inspector Nazim Uddin and constable Mokter Hossain were also injured during the gunfight, he added.

With the latest figures, a total of 14 people were killed in ‘gunfights’ across the country since May 12 and six of them were accused in drug peddling.

Earlier, in reply to a question from the press in a programme in Dhaka Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal told the reporters that these incidents of crossfire will be investigated and offenders will be brought to be justice.

Six drug dealers have been killed in crossfire or gunfight in the last four days, although no high profile or big drug dealer is arrested in the operation of law enforcement agencies.
