Bhola, Dec 5 - Two suspected robbers were killed in a ‘gunfight’ with members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) at Char Kukri Mukri in Charfashion upazila of Bhola district on Sunday.

Tipped off, a team of Rab conducted a drive at No 1 Jalia canal in the morning, said Shakhawat Hossain, officer-in-charge of Dakkhin Aicha Police Station.

Sensing the presence of the elite force members, the robbers opened fire on the Rab team, forcing them to fire back which triggered the gunfight.

Some sharp weapons and arms were recovered from the spot.
