A leader of a Purba Banglar Communist Party (ML–Janajudhdha) faction was killed in an ‘encounter’ between the Rapid Action Battalion and his associates at Ataikula in Pabna early Sunday.

The deceased, Mohammad Ali, 28, resident of Goaishbari Natunpara at Ataikula, was the second-in-command of the faction. The battalion said he was accused in cases filed in connection with murder, robbery, extortion and other crimes.

A battalion team, tipped off on gathering of the ultra left party activists, raided a place in the village. The party activists fired on the battalion team as it approached the place. The law enforcers fired back. In the shootout, which lasted for five to seven minutes, the activists managed to get away, leaving behind Mohammad Ali, killed on the spot in the gunfight. The battalion seized a shutter gun, seven bullets and four bombs from the place. Mohammad Ali’s elder brother Abdur Rab was also killed in a shootout
