50,000 yaba pills were also recovered from the spot

A suspected drug dealer was killed in a reported gunfight in the Teknaf upazila of Cox’s Bazar.

The incident took place in the Sabarang union around 9:30pm on Wednesday.

The deceased was identified as Siraj Mia, a suspected yaba dealer.

Teknaf police station Prodeep Kumar Das confirmed the matter and said: “Acting on a tip-off about an illegal yaba shipment coming in from Myanmar, members of BGB and police conducted a drive.”

“The gang of drug dealers had open-fired at the sight of law enforcement, so, we fired back in self-defence. After the men retreated, we recovered a bullet-riddled body along with 50,000 yaba pills and two locally made guns.”

The injured was taken to the Teknaf Hospital where the on-duty physician pronounced him dead on arrival. The body was later sent to the Cox’s Bazar Sadar Hospital for autopsy.
