Suspected 'robber' killed in Gazipur ‘gunfight’

A suspected robber was killed in a reported gunfight between his cohorts and police at Patka in Sreepur upazila here early Wednesday.

The deceased was identified as Abdur Rab Hawladar, 35, of Goshairhat upazila in Shariatpur district, UNB reports.

Acting on secret information that a group of robbers was taking preparation to commit robbery in the area, a team of police conducted a drive around 3am, said Joynal Abedin, duty officer of Sreepur Police Station.

Sensing the presence of the law enforcers, the robbers opened fire to police, prompting them to fire back, triggering a gunfight.

At one stage of gunfight, Abdur Rab caught in the line of fire and sustained bullet injuries.

Later, he was taken to Shaheed Tajuddin Medical College Hospital where the doctors declared him dead.

Three policemen were also injured in the incident.

The deceased was wanted in 15 cases, said police.
