A suspected drug dealer was killed in a reported gunfight with police in Sadar upazila of Narayanganj early Tuesday.

Sensing the presence of law enforcers, the drug traders opened fire on them, forcing them to fire back in self-defence which triggered a gunfight.

Later, police found Biplob dead on the spot, added the official.

Two policemen were also injured in the gunfight.
