A suspected drug trader has been shot and wounded by members of Border Guard Bangladesh at Putkhali along Benapole border in the early hours of Thursday.

The injured was identified as Alamin, 28, son of Nurul Islam of Putkhali.

Subedar Jakir Hossain, Company Commander of Putkhali BGB camp, said the incident took place in early hours of the day when Alamin along with some cohorts was bringing contraband drug items from India.

“On information, when a BGB team conducted a drive, the smugglers opened fire, forcing them to fire back, initiating a gunfight,” the man added.

Later, Alamin was found on the spot with a bullet wound, said the BGB personnel, adding that he is now undergoing treatment at Jessore Sadar Hospital.

“Alamin, a listed drug trader, was accused in four cases,” Jakir said.

However, the BGB members recovered 46 bottles of Phensedyl from the spot.
