Detectives arrested four alleged criminals, including one with bullet injuries, after a reported 'gunfight' at Nandipara in the city's Khilgaon early Friday.
The detectives also recovered three pistols and 12 bullets from their possessions.
The injured was identified as Khorshed Alam alias Pagla Sohel, 30, wanted in a number of cases filed with different police stations in the city.
Contacted, deputy commissioner of Detective Branch (East division) Khandaker Nurunnabi said a special DB team conducted a drive at Nandipara in between 2:00am and 3:45am based on secret information that some gangsters were preparing to capture a piece of land.
When the DB men reached the spot, the land grabbers fired shots at the law enforcers triggering a gunfight. At one stage of the fight, Sohel was arrested with bullet wounds along with his three accomplices, including Swapan, from the spot, said the DC DB.
