'Pirate' killed in Barguna 'gunfight'

A suspected pirate was killed in a reported gunfight with the Rapid Action Battalion members in Sadar upazila of Barguna district early Friday.

It was learned that the deceased was a member of a pirate group but his detailed identity could not be known yet, said Patharghata Police Station officer in-charge Abul Bashar.

He said a team of RAB conducted a drive in Badurtala area around 1:30 am. 

Sensing the presence of the elite force, the pirates opened fire on them, prompting the law enforcers to fire back, leaving one pirate dead.
