A suspected drug trader was killed in a reported gunfight with Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) at Ukhia upazila in Cox’s Bazar district on Wednesday night.

The deceased was identified as Jahangir Alam.

RAB-7 commanding officer Azim Ahmed said on information, they conducted a drive in Jaliapalong area around 8.30 pm.

Sensing the presence of the team, the drug traders opened fire at RAB, forcing the team to retaliate in self-defence that triggered a gunfight.

Later, the RAB recovered the bullet-hit body of Jahangir from the scene while others managed to flee the scene.

The team seized 10,000 Yaba tablets, one pistol, and three bullets from the area, the RAB official added.
