Police recovered a pistol, four rounds bullet and two daggers from the spot


A member of an outlawed political party was on Monday killed in a reported gunfight with police in Harinakundu upazila of Jhenaidah district.

The incident occurred in the upazila’s Tetulia area early in the day.

The deceased, identified as Badsha Hossain, 47, was a member of the outlawed Purba Banglar Communist Party (PBCP) Janajuddha faction.

Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, Jhenaidah Additional Superintendent of Police Milu Miah Biswas said: "A team from Harinakundu Police Station, acting on a tip-off, took position in the Tetulia area. Sensing the presence of the police, miscreants opened fire. Police fired back in self-defence.

"Badsha's body was recovered from the spot after the gunfight had ended. However, other suspects managed to escape the scene.

"The body of the deceased was sent to Harinakundu Upazila Health Complex for autopsy," he said.

"There are several cases [more than 10] lodged against Badsha with local police stations," Biswas added. 

A gun, four bullets and two daggers were recovered at the scene.

When contacted, Abdul Kuddus, nephew of Badsha, said: "My uncle was a member of the Purba Banglar Communist Party (PBCP) Janajuddha faction. He was sentenced for 15 years in a murder case. 

"Badhsha came out of jail two years back, after serving his term, and started living an ordinary life."

"However, about a couple of months ago, police raided my uncle's house. Since then he was on the run, out of fear. 

"On Monday morning we got to know that he died in a 'gunfight'," Kuddus added.
