1 killed in Srinagar gunfight

A man has been killed in a gunfight with police in Srinagar, two hours after he snatched a rifle from law enforcers in Munshiganj.

The deceased is Shahin, 30, said Srinagar OC Mahbubur Rahman.

He said the incident took place at 2:30pm on Tuesday.

“Miscreants, riding on a bike, shot at Duty Constable Al-Amin and snatched a rifle from him at 12:30pm,” the OC said.

Later, the miscreants opened fire at the police officials and district reserve police, when they conducted a drive in the area soon after the snatch.

In retaliation, police fired back, which left Shahin dead on the spot. OC Mahbubur Rahman was also injured in the incident.
