RAB conducted a drive after being tipped-off about a gang of robbers in the Damdamia hill area of Hnila. 

Sensing the presence of the law enforcers, the robbers opened fire at them, prompting RAB officials to retaliate, according to Additional Police Superintendent Md Abu Salam Chowdhury of Cox's Bazar RAB 15.

Later, the elite force recovered the bodies of Kefayet and Qurban from the spot and sent them to the morgue of Cox’s Bazar Sadar Hospital for autopsy.
