PV Desk : Two persons with ties to drug trafficking have been killed in a ‘gunfight’ at a joint checkpoint of RAB and BGB at Himchhari, a beachside tourist area in Cox’s Bazar.
One of the dead has been identified as Enamul Haque, 26, from Chandpur. The second man is yet to be identified.
BGB officials believe both men were drug traffickers as arms and yaba pills have been found in their bags.
“A car from Teknaf on its way to Cox’s Bazar town tried to change its course when it neared the checkpoint.”
“The men in the car opened fire on BGB and RAB members when they chased the vehicle. RAB and BGB retaliated in self-defence leaving two drug-traders dead on the spot.”
