A man was killed and 10 others were bullet injured in a broad day light gunfight between two local groups of the ruling Awami League (AL) centering the supremacy in the locality of Beraid Union Parishad in the city's Badda area on Sunday afternoon.  
The victim was identified as Kamruzzaman alias Dukhu, 35, a follower of UP Chairman Jahangir Alam and also a contractor of Crown Cement Factory.
Of the injured, nine were rushed to Apollo Hospital Dhaka in the city's Baridhara area. Among the injured, the identities of six are Sunny, Sharif, Kamal, Badal, Nazir and Taj.  
Quoting the locals, police said that the incident took place at around 4:30pm in front of the Crown Cement Factory on the bank of Balu River under Bhatara Police Station.
Rivals reportedly belonging to local MP A K M Rahmotullah group and UP Chairaman Jahangir Alam group locked in clashes over previous enmity as well as centering supremacy in the locality, said the law enforcers.  
However, members of the law enforcing agencies have so far failed to arrest any person in this connection.

Additional Police personnel were deployed in the area to avert any untoward situation, the police official aid.
