According to reports, the deceased was killed in a shootout with the security operatives who foiled the gang’s operation.
His corpse has been taken to the state police command as efforts are being made to apprehend other fleeing members of the gang.
Some months ago, security operatives engaged in a gun battle with 3 suspected kidnappers. The suspects were overpowered and shot dead in the gun battle.
The alleged kidnappers were gunned down while trying to abduct a pastor in the area.
An alarm was raised and security operatives who happened to be at the area at that moment were alerted and then engaged in a gun battle with the suspects.
