Four people including two suspected killers of ASP Mizanur Rahman were killed in separate “gunfights” in Dhaka and Kushtia today.
Two alleged robbers -- Sobhan Ali, 35, and Hasanuzzaman Lalon, 40, were killed reportedly in two separate gunfights in Kushtia while names of the two suspects of ASP Mizanur murder could not be known, police said.
Earlier on June 21, Mizanur Rahman, an assistant superintendent of police (ASP) of Savar highway circle, was killed by unidentified assailants hours after he left his Uttara residence to join work at Kaliakoir in Gazipur.
In Dhaka, the "gunfight" took place when a team of Detective Branch of police, acting on a tip-off, went to Rupnagar Beribadh area to nab a group of "muggers" around 3:30am today, said Masudur Rahman, deputy commissioner (Media) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP).
