Two suspected drug peddlers have been killed in a reported gunfight with Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) in Teknaf upazila of Cox’s Bazar district.

The incident occurred in Domdomia area of the upazila around 4:30am on Monday.

The deceased are Md Jamal, 27, and Md Yunus, 21. Details regarding their identities could not be ascertained yet.

Confirming the matter, BGB Teknaf 2 Commanding Officer Lt Col Mohammad Faisal Hasan Khan told Dhaka Tribune three of their members were also injured in the incident.

He said: "BGB members, during a regular border patrol, signalled a group of drug peddlers to stop as they were attempting to smuggle yaba tablets through Domdomia checkpost.

“Seeing law enforcement, the miscreants opened fire on BGB, prompting them to fire back that triggered a gunfight.”

Jamal and Yunus were injured in the “gunfight” while the others managed to flee the scene.

They were taken to Teknaf Upazila Health Complex in critical condition, and later transferred to Cox’s Bazar Sadar Hospital, where the duty doctor declared them dead.

BGB also recovered 50,000 yaba pills, two locally-made firearms, three rounds of bullets and three sharp weapons from the spot.

A case has been filed with Teknaf police station regarding the matter.
