Bachchu and his accomplices opened fire sensing the RAB team’s presence. Two RAB members were injured.Bachchu died when the RAB retaliated,” said the elite force official.His body has been kept at the Chunarughat Upazila Health Complex.RAB has also claimed to have recovered a gun and several bullets from the scene.The four children – Monir Mia, 7, Zakaria Ahmed Shubho, 8, Tajel Mia, 10, and Ismail Hossain, 10, – went missing on Feb 12.Their bodies were found buried under heaps of soil at a dried out swamp in the Sundrateki Village five days later.
