Rapid Action Battalion yesterday recovered firearm-making materials, a locally-made firearm and two rounds of bullets from a hut adjacent to the residence of Saroatoli union parishad chairman under Boalkhali upazila.
A team from Rab-7 conducted the drive around 1.30pm and made the recovery, said Major Shamim Sarkar, assistant director of the elite force.
He suspected that guns were being made in the house.
Law enforcers were investigating whether chairman Belal Hossain had any involvement with this nor not. However, no one was arrested in connection with the incident.
