Two suspected drug traders were killed in a reported gunfight with police at Rajarchhara in Teknaf upazila early Friday.

Dipak Kumar Das, officer-in-charge of Teknaf Police Station, said police arrested Nur Mohammad and Nurul Amin from the upazila on Wednesday as both of them were wanted in a number of cases.
