Outlaw killed in Khulna 'gunfight'

Star Online Report

A leader of outlawed New Biplobi Communist Party (NBCP) was killed in a "gunfight" with police in Dumuria upazila of Khulna early today.

Litu Sarder, 38, a resident of Thukra village in Dumuria, was regional chief of the NBCP, reports our Khulna correspondent quoting Mashiur Rahman, officer-in-charge of local police station.

He was accused in a number of cases including murder and extortion filed with Dumuria Police Station.

A police team conducted a raid at Shantinagar of Thukra village around 1:30am after receiving information that Litu was holding a clandestine meeting there, the OC said.

Sensing their presence, Litu and his associates opened fire at the law enforcers, prompting them to retaliate with bullets that triggered a “gunfight”, he said.

Litu came in the line of fire and died on the spot, he added.

Two constables -- Mosharraf and Ilyas – also sustained minor injuries during the “gunfight”, the police official said.


Police recovered two firearms and six bullets from the scene.
