A terrorist was killed in a gunfight between his cohorts and police at Parul Para in the district town early Monday. The deceased was identified as Shahjalal Miji, an accused in 22 cases filed with different police stations in the district.
Police super of the district Mohammad Jayedul Alam said Miji was arrested on Sunday afternoon and police, acting on his statement, conducted a drive in the area the following day to recover arms.
Sensing police presence, Alam said, his associates opened fire prompting the law enforcers to fire back, triggering a gunfight. Later, police recovered Miji’s bullet-hit body from the spot.
