A suspected robber was killed in an alleged ‘gunfight’ with members of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Sitakunda upazila of Chattogram early Saturday.
The deceased was identified as Kajol, 48.
Being informed that a gang of robbers was prepping to commit robbery at Bayezid link road area, a team of RAB conducted a drive around 1:00am in the area, said Abul Kalam Azad, officer-in-charge (OC) of Sitakunda Police Station.
Sensing the presence of law enforcers, the robbers opened fire on the elite force members, forcing them to retaliate, he added.
Later, the law enforcers recovered the body of Kajol from the spot and sent it to Chattogram Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) morgue for autopsy.
