Tipped off, a police team was dispatched to the area around 4 am after learning the whereabouts of Nabab, said Maruf Ahmed, officer-in-charge of Satkhira Sadar Police Station.

Police also recovered a foreign pistol, one round bullet and four machetes, said the OC.

The OC also claimed that sub-inspector Ibrahim Khalil and two constables Ashik and Tuhin sustained injuries during the gunfight, reports UNB.
