Two suspected drug peddlers have been killed in separate incidents of “gunfights” in two districts.

The incidents took place early Wednesday.

So far, about 138 people, mostly alleged drug dealers, have been killed and scores of others arrested since the drives began a month ago. 

In Chandpur, a suspected drug peddler named Yunus was killed in a “gunfight” with police in Puran Bazar.

Yunus was the son of late Abdul Majid Miji of Middle Sriramdi area.

Police also recovered 103 pieces of yaba tablets, a single-barreled gun, two rounds of bullets, four cartridge shells, and local weapons from the scene.

The police said, acting on a tip-off, a patrol team of the model police station conducted the raid in the area.

Chandpur station Officer-in-Charge Wali Ullah Oli said: “As our patrol team reached the scene, the drug peddlers opened fire at us. In retaliation, we fired back, which left Yunus injured. 

Later, he was pronounced dead when taken to Chandpur General Hospital.

Five police officers were also injured in the incident. 

The OC said the other drug peddlers escaped the scene.

Yunus was accused in eight cases, he added.

In Mymensingh, a suspected drug dealer named Manik was killed in a reported gunfight with a rival drug group.

Later, police recovered his body from Gafargaon upazila. Manik was from Charomsolanda village, police said.

Gafargaon station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Abdul Ahad Khan said: “The body has been sent to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital.”

“A total of 49 pieces of yaba tablets, a bullet shell, two machetes, and a dagger were recovered from the scene.”
