A suspected drug peddler was killed in a reported gunfight with law enforcers at Chandmari in Narail town while another sustained bullet injuries in another ‘shootout’ at Yusufpur in Charghat upazila of Rajshahi yesterday, reports UNB.

With the latest death, at least 124 people were killed in ‘gunfights’ with members of law enforcement agencies while 37 bodies of suspected drug traders were recovered after reported gun battles between rival groups during the countrywide anti-narcotic drives since15 May.

Ataur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Detective Branch of Police, said a team of DB police challenged a gang of drug traders while they were going to Yusufpur around 2:30am. Sensing the presence of the law enforcers, the drug traders attacked them, triggering a gunfight, leaving assistant sub-inspector Imran Hossain and Constable Emdad Hossain injured, he said.
