A team led by Nayek Subedar Abul Bashar of BGB made a drive to the area on information that a large drug trade was going to take place around 5am Monday, police and BGB sources said.

"Sensing BGB's presence, Rahman and his associates started firing at us and when we retaliated, they fled the spot leaving the bullet shot dead body of Rahman on the spot, " said Lt Col Ali Haider Azad Ahmed, commanding officer of BGB- 34 Battalion.

"We are not sure if Rahman was a Rohingya or not, we will contact police to further investigate the matter," added the CO.         

BGB also recovered 80,000 pieces of the contraband drug yaba, a rifle and two rounds of bullets from the spot, confirmed the officer.

Contacted, Naikyangchhari police station OC Anwar Hossain said: "We were informed about the incident by the locals and sent the dead body for autopsy."
