‘Serial rapist’ killed in 'gunfight' with Rab in Gazipur

An alleged serial rapist was killed in a "shootout" with Rapid Action Battalion at Madhumita rail track area in East Tongi at Gazipur early today.

The deceased Abu Sufian, 21, hailing from Faridpur district, used to reside at a rented house in Tongi, reports our correspondent quoting Lt Commander Abdullah Al Mamun, company commander of Gazipur Porabari camp.  

Sufian was an accused in several rape cases, including one filed with East Tongi Police Station for killing and raping a seven-year-old, Rab personnel said.

On information that a group of terrorists were staying in front of Madhumita rail track area, Rab-1 team conducted a drive there around 12:30am to arrest them, said the Rab official.

Sensing presence of Rab, the terrorists opened fire on the elite force, prompting them to retaliate, the officer said, claiming, Abu Sufian died on the spot receiving bullet injury.

Sufian's associates, however, managed to escape, Mamun said. Rab recovered a pistol and three rounds of bullets from the spot, he added.
