Two members of outlawed Sarbahara Party have been killed and three others injured in a gunfight with the members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Tangail Sadar upazila.

The deceased were identified as Fazlu and his aide Uzzal.

RAB 12 Company Commander ASP Mahiuddin Faruqui said acting on a tip-off, a team of RAB raided in Jugnihat area of Sadar upazila, where the outlawed party members were staying.

He said, “Sensing the presence of the RAB members, the outlawed men opened fire, forcing the elite force members to fire back that triggered a gunfight around 1am on Thursday.

“Fazlu and his aide Uzzal were caught in the line of fire and died on the spot.”

However, other members of the outlawed party managed to flee the scene, said the RAB official.

The elite force recovered one foreign-made pistol, one shutter gun, seven rounds of bullet and a mobile phone set from the spot.
