Rape accused killed in Noakhali 'gunfight'

An accused in a gang rape case was killed in a reported gunfight with police in Senbag upazila of Noakhali district early Friday.

Deceased Akram, 25, was a resident of Uttar Manikpur village in the upazila.

Akram alongwith some other persons picked up a mentally challenged girl, 14, from in front of her house at the village on June 6 and took her to a nearby village. They, later, raped the girl there, said police.

However, the victim's mother lodged a case with Senbag Police Station in this connection
 
The police station officer in-charge Abdul Batem Mridha said on information, police conducted a drive at the village at about 2:30 am to arrest Akram.

During the drive, Akram and his cohorts opened fire on policemen, forcing them to fire back that led to a gunfight.

After the gun-battle, police found bullet-injured Akram while others managed to escape the place, said the OC.





He was taken to Noakhali Sadar General Hospital where the on-duty doctor declared him dead. 

The law enforcers also recovered a firearm, six bullets and one sharp weapon from the scene, he added.
