Man killed in Kushtia ‘gunfight’


A man was killed in what the law enforcement called a gunfight between two groups of drug traders in Kushtia city early Monday.

The police claimed that the deceased Ratan Ali was a drug trader, reports UNB.

Officer-in-charge of Bheramara police station, Khandaker Shamim Uddin, said that a team of police, being informed about a gunfight between two groups of drug traders, conducted a drive near 4 No. Bridge area of Chadgram in Bheramara upazila around 3:00am.

Sensing the presence of the law enforcers, the drug traders fled away from the scene.

Later, the policemen recovered a bullet-hit body from the spot and sent it to Kushtia General Hospital.

Prothom Alo, however, could not verify the law enforcement’s version of the incident independently as no version of it was available immediately either from any witness or from any member of the victim’s family.
