The deceased were identified as Shaheen alias Banduk Shaheen, 40, a suspected drug-peddler wanted in several cases in Narayanganj while Shahinur Rahman, 30, from Nurpur village in Kushtia.

Banduk Shaheen’s associates then reportedly hurled bombs and opened fire on police, forcing the law enforcers to fire back, the OC said.

At one stage,Banduk  Shaheen was caught in the line of fire and died on the spot. Police recovered one pistol and four bullets from the spot. Two policemen, including the OC, were injured in the bomb attack during the gunfight.

In Kushtia’s Sadar upazila,Sabbirul Islam, officer-in-charge of DB police, said police arrested Shahinur Rahman on Thursday, and they along with Shahin conducted a drive in the area around 3 am to hold other accused in the case.

Sensing the law enforcers’ presence, a group of criminals opened fire on the police, prompting them to retaliate, triggering a gunfight.

After a brief gunfight, police recovered the bullet-hit body of Shahin and took him to General Hospital where doctors declared him dead.

Police said Shahin was wanted in a case filed for killing expatriate Rakibul Islam of Kumarkhali upazila. Rakibul’s wife and younger brother reportedly hired Shahin for killing Rakibul over an extramarital affair, police said. unb
