The deceased was Delu alias Delu Master, head of the Delu bahinini in the area.
RAB sources said on a tip-off, a team of RAB conducted a drive in the area. But Delu and his cohorts opened fire at the law enforcers forcing them to retaliate that triggered the gunfight around 3:30am.
Delu sustained bullet injuries during the gunfight. Later, he died.
