A man, accused in child rape and murder case, was killed in a gunfight between two groups of drug traders in Kholadanga rice-mill area of Jashore district town early Wednesday. 

The deceased was identified as drug trader Shamim, main accused in the schoolgirl Trisha rape and murder case.

Kotwali Police Station Officer-in-Charge Apurba Hasan said that acting on information that a gunfight between two groups of drug traders took place at Kholadanga rice-mill area, a team of police rushed in. 

Sensing the presence of law enforcers, the drug traders fled the scene. Later, police recovered the bullet-hit body of Shamim. 

A One-shooter gun and 50 pieces of Yaba tablets were also recovered from the scene.  

Earlier on Monday evening, the body of Trisha was found in a sack in a ditch behind the house of a neighbour at Dharmatala, a day after she went missing.

Police initially thought that the child was raped before she was killed.

A case was filed accusing several unnamed people and Shamim in this connection.
