Murder accused killed in Mymensingh ‘gunfight’

A man accused of murder was killed in a reported gunfight with police at Chakua Daria intersection in Gafargaon upazila of Mymensingh early Thursday.

The deceased was identified as Ekhlas Uddin, 32, son of Nurul Islam of Chakua village.

He was wanted in two murder cases – the latest one was for killing an auto-rickshaw driver last month.

Tipped off, a team of police conducted a drive in the area around 1:30am, said Shahinuzzaman, officer-in-charge of Pagla Police Station.

As soon as police reached the area, Ekhlas and his associates hurled brickbats and fired gunshots, triggering a gunfight, the OC said.

Ekhlas was caught in the line of fire and sustained a gunshot wound. Later, he was taken to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital where doctors declared him dead.
