Prime accused in the Rifat Sharif murder case Sabbir Ahmed alias Nayon Bond was killed in a reported gunfight with police in Barguna Sadar upazila early Tuesday.
Officer-in-charge of Sadar police station Abir Mohammad Hossain said a team of police, led by additional superintendent of police Shahjahan, conducted a drive in Purakata Ferryghat area at about 4:15am on information that several murder accused were staying there.
Sensing presence of the law enforcers, the miscreants launched an attack on them forcing them to fire shots in self-defence, he said.
A criminal was found lying dead on the spot after the gun battle, the OC said, adding that local people later identified him as Nayon Bond.
Four police personnel, including the additional SP, were also injured in the incident, Abir claimed.
Rifat, 22, was hacked to death by miscreants in front of his wife Ayesha Siddika Minni in broad daylight in Barguna district town on June 26. The incident was caught on surveillance camera.
Nine people, including six FIR-named accused, have so far been arrested over the murder.
On Monday, two accused — Mohammad Oli and Tanvir Hossain — reportedly confessed to a court about their involvement in the killing.
The court also granted a five-day remand for Nazmul Hasan, Saimun and Sagar for interrogation over the gruesome murder.
