2 shot dead in separate incidents in Cox’s Bazar

Two people were  gunned down  in Pekua and Teknaf upazilas of Cox’s Bazar district early Monday.

In Pekua upazila, a woman was shot dead and two others sustained bullet injuries in an attack by a young man at Barobakia Bodamajhi Ghona  in the upazila around 2:30 am.

The deceased was identified as Selina Akter while the injured are Nazmur Sakib and Saiful Islam of the area.

Saifur Rahman Majumdar, officer-in-charge of Pekua Police Station said one Mamun had an enmity with Selina over the ownership of a piece of land.

As a sequel to the enmity, Mamun along with his associates swooped on the house of Selina and opened fire on them, leaving Selina dead on the spot and  two others injured.

Hearing sound of gunshots, local people went to the spot and caught Mamun and another one and handed over them to police.

In another incident, a young man identified as Imam Hossain was shot dead reportedly by some miscreants in Teknaf upazila on Sunday night.

Officer-n-charge of Teknaf Police Station Habibur Rahman said Khalek Bahini, a local terrorist gang, might have killed him for establishing supremacy.

Police recovered the two bodies and sent those to local hospital morgue for autopsy.
