Feni Correspondent:   Two suspected drug traders were killed in a ‘gunfight’ with RAB in Feni Sadar upazila’s BSCIC area on Sunday midnight.

The deceased were identified as Md Mamun Morshed, 35, and Md Al Amin, 25.

According to Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), they set up a checkpost in the area and on suspicion stopped Mamun Morshed and Al Amin on a motorcycle.

As the duo tried to flee, the elite force chased them. At one stage, the young men opened fire on the RAB personnel, forcing them to retaliate, causing the gunfight which left them dead on the spot.

RAB members also recovered 24,700 pieces of yaba from the oil tank of the motorcycle, one pistol and five bullets from the spot.
