Detained drug suspect killed in Teknaf gunfight

04 June 2019 bdnews24.com

A suspected drug peddler has been killed in a so-called shootout with police in Cox's Bazar's Teknaf Upazila.
The incident occurred in the Katakhali area of the upazila's Howaikong Union in the early hours of Monday, said Teknaf Police OC Pradeep Kumar Das.
The dead was identified as Mofizur Rahman, 30, a 'marked' and 'listed' yaba dealer. He was named in a series of cases with the police.  The OC said, Mofizur was arrested by the police on Sunday evening before he was taken on a raid to recover methamphetamine-based yaba tablets. But when the police arrived at the scene, Mofizur's  associates opened fire on them, forcing the law enforcers to retaliate.
"At one stage, a wounded Mofizur was found lying on the ground. He was rushed to the Teknaf Upazila Health Complex where doctors on duty declared him dead."
Police recovered yaba tablets, a gun and bullets from the spot, added OC Pradeep.
