Two men, accused in a case filed for killing businessman Nazmul Hasan, have been killed in a reported gunfight with Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Moulvibazar on Sunday morning.

The deceased were identified as Tofail, 35, and Shahid Mia, 40.

Battalion Commander of Srimangal RAB-9 Basu Dutta Chakma said the criminals fired on RAB vehicles in the early hours of Sunday at Miringa Tea Garden area of Moulvibazar, prompting the elite force to retaliate, triggering a gunfight.

Later in the day, Nazmul Hasan’s elder brother Shamsul Haque filed a murder case with Kamalganj Police Station, naming 14 people and 4-5 others unknown persons.
