A man was killed in what police called a gunfight in Kishoreganj early Friday.
News agency UNB quoted police as saying that the deceased was Arshaf Uddin, 30, son of Bachchu Mia, from Bhairab Upazila’s Manikdi and an accused in several robbery cases.
A police team raided Ujanchar Beelpar in Bajitpur upazila around 2:30am after being tipped-off about a drug deal taking place there, said Md Shariful Islam, additional superintendent of Kishoreganj police.
“Our team came under fire as soon as it reached the spot,” he said. “Arshaf was killed during a skirmish that followed.”
Police recovered a shotgun, 100 yaba pills, 15 phensedyl bottles and five bullets from the spot, Shariful added.
