Two men killed, they were called as robbers!
BY Bangladesh Media; Two men were killed in a 'gunfight' with Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) at the Sundarbans in Sharankhola upazila of Bagerhat district. The killing incident took place today morning. The Daily Star wrote they were robbers. But it could not verify the justification, why they were called as "Robbers"! RAB 8 involvement is clear as it is under the jurisdiction of the battalion. They operated with the Helicopter. Maj Sabbir Rahman Osmani, deputy commander of Rab-8 have commented about the killings.
The daily star changed its caption later saying "Two notorious leaders of forest robbers killed" and wrote that "two alleged forest robbers", including a ringleader, were killed in a shootout with members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) in Shelarchar area (east circle of Sundarbans) in Sharankhola upazila of the district.
