2 'Rohingya drug traders' killed in shootout
Two 'Rohingya drug dealers' were killed in a gunfight with the members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Teknaf upazila of Cox's Bazar early Wednesday.
Deceased Abul Hashim, 30, and Md Ayub, 24, were the residents of Kutupalang camp.
The RAB sources said acting on a tip off, a team of the elite force conducted a drive on Cox's Bazar-Teknaf Marine Drive Road around 1am.
Sensing presence of the team, the drug trader gang, who were smuggling drugs, started opening fire on the RAB personnel, forcing them to fire back.
After the gun-battle, the elite force men rescued bullet injured Hashim and Ayub from the spot and took the duo to Teknaf Upazila Health Complex. Later, they were shifted to Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital where the duo succumbed to their injuries.
The bodies were sent to the hospital morgue.
