A robbery suspect was killed allegedly in a gunfight with police at Ujanchar Beelpar area in Bajitpur Upazila of Kishoreganj on early Friday.

Police named the deceased as Arshaf Uddin, 30, son of Bachchu Mia, from Bhairab Upazila's Manikdi area. He is accused in several robbery cases, reports UNB.

A police team raided Beelpar around 2:30am after being tipped-off about a drug deal taking place there, said Md Shariful Islam, additional superintendent of Kishoreganj police.

"Our team came under fire as soon as it reached the spot," he said. "Arshaf was killed during a skirmish that followed."

Police recovered a shotgun, 100 yaba pills, 15 phensedyl bottles and five bullets from the spot, Shariful added.
