02 January 2019,Wednesday, 13:10



Two suspected drug traders were killed in a reported gunfight with members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Daganbhuiya of Feni early Wednesday, reports UNB.

The deceased were Mohammad Asad, 42, son of Toru and Emamul Akond 24, son of Manik Akond of Rajoir upazila in Madaripur district.

A team of RAB-7 gave signal to a covered van to stop around 2:30am, said squadron leader Shafayet Jamil Fahim of RAB-7 Feni camp.

Defying the directive, the criminals then opened fire on the elite force members, forcing them to fire back in self-defence.

At one stage, Asad and Emamul caught in the line of fire and died on the spot.

The RAB team also recovered a one shutter gun, 13 bullets and 250 kgs of hemp from the spot. The team also seized the covered van.

The law enforcement’s version of the incident, however, could not be verified independently as no versions of the incident were available immediately either from any witness or from the victim’s family.
