A suspected yaba trader has been killed in a “gunfight” with police in Teknaf upazila of Cox's Bazar district.

Mohammad Prakash Dilu, 36, alias Dil Mohammad was killed—during a “gunfight” at an abandoned fish hatchery in the Cox’s Bazar-Teknaf Marine Drive area—around 12am on Tuesday.

Teknaf police station Officer-in-Charge Pradip Kumar Das told Dhaka Tribune: "We detained Dil Mohammad around 5pm on Tuesday. He was a listed yaba trader and was also wanted in many cases.” 

He continued: "Based on his information, we conducted a drive at the abandoned fish hatchery to recover ammunition and drugs that he had been storing there. 

“Upon seeing us, his associates opened fire on us. In retaliation, we fired back.

Later, Dil Mohammad’s body was recovered from the spot while his associates fled the scene. 

Three policemen—sub-inspectors (SI) Sajib Dutt and Babul, and Constable Ibrahim—were injured in the incident.

Police recovered six pistols, 13 rounds of cartridges, and 7,000 yaba pills from the spot.

Dil Mohammad’s body has been sent to Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital for autopsy, the OC said.
