Two people were killed in 'shootouts' with the members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) and police in Narsingdi and Cox's Bazar districts early Friday.
Our Cox's Bazar Correspondent reported that an alleged Rohingya drug trader named Nur Kabir, 28, was killed in a 'shootout' with BGB men.
While patrolling, a team of BGB-2 challenged a group of people who were digging earth in Ledar Chhuri area in Teknaf upazila around 1:00am, said commanding officer of BGB-2 Lt Col Mohamamd Faisal Hasan Khan.
Sensing danger, they opened fire on the BGB men, forcing them to retaliate.
After the gunfight, the BGB members found bullet-injured Nur while others managed to flee. Nur was taken to Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital where the on-duty doctor declared him dead.
The BGB men also recovered a gun, two cartridges and 1.20 lakh Yaba tablets from the spot, Lt Col Faisal added.

The deceased, Abdur Razzaue, 38, was a resident of Dhanua village in Shibpur upazila.
