After the gunfight, Rab found three dead bodies lying on the ground and recovered three pistols, four one shooter guns and 25 rounds of bullets from the scene.

One of the Rab members suffered bullet injury during the gunfight and is now undergoing treatment at a local hospital, the deputy captain said.
