Feni ‘gunfight’ kills robber suspect
A suspected robber was killed and another sustained bullet injuries in a reported gunfight with Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Lemua area of Feni district on Wednesday.

The deceased has been identified as Foysal, 28, member of a five-member robber gang, reports UNB.

Shafayat Jamil Fahim, camp commander of RAB-7, said that on information, a team of the elite force went to Lemua area on Dhaka-Chittagong highway on Tuesday late night. 

When they reached the spot, law enforcers found that a robber gang numbering five is robbing a microbus.

Sensing law enforcers' presence, robbers opened fire on them prompting the elite force members to fire back, triggering a gunfight that left two robbers wounded by bullets while three others managed to flee the scene.

Later, the injured were taken to Feni District Sadar Hospital where Foysal succumbed to his injuries and another robber, Nur Hossain Selim, 27, was undergoing treatment there. 

RAB members, meanwhile, recovered two one-shooter guns, bullets, and locals weapons from the spot.

The injured will be handed over to police after filing a case with Feni Model Police Station, the RAB commander said.
