He stated that on receipt of the information, operatives of the command immediately swung into action and engaged the hoodlums in a gun battle.

According to him, during the gun duel, two of the suspected IPOB  members were fatally wounded while others escaped with bullet wounds.

He said that items recovered from the suspects include 1 General Purpose Machine Gun, GPMG, 10 rounds of Chain Bullets and 5 motorcycles.
