An alleged criminal was killed in a “gunfight” with the Detective Branch of Police in the capital's Gandaria area early yesterday.

Acting on a tip-off, a team of detective police carried out a raid around 2:55am near Dhupkhola Math in Gandaria area where a group of armed criminals had gathered, he added.

Sensing presence of law enforcers, the criminals opened fire on police forcing them to retaliate and triggered a “gunfight”, leaving Emon critically injured, said the deputy commissioner.
