At least six people were gunned down and four others injured in a deadly gunfight between two factions of Chattogram Hill Tracts-based political group United People's Democratic Front (UPDF) at Swanirbhar in Sadar upazila on Saturday morning.

Shahadat Hossain, officer-in-charge of Sadar Police Station, said the gun battle between the two factions of 'UPDF Prasit' and 'UPDF Democratic' groups broke out over establishing control over the area around 8am, leaving the six people dead.

Three of the injured were referred to Chittagong Medical College Hospital as they suffered bullet wounds.
