Suspected robber killed in shootout with police
An alleged robber was killed in a gunfight between police and a group of robbers early Tuesday at Satrakanda village in the district.

The identity of the deceased was not available immediately.

Additional police superintendent of the district Md Abdul Latif said a team of petrol police challenged a group of people who supposedly gathered in the area around 1:00am to commit a robbery.

Sensing law enforcers' presence, the robbers fired gunshots. The law enforcers also retaliated, triggering the gunfight.

Police later recovered the body of a robber from the spot. The other robbers, however, managed to flee the scene.

The body was sent to Jhalakathi Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsy; according to UNB.
