A suspected yaba trader was killed in a gunfight with members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) in Sultanpur area of Cumilla Sadar upazila early Tuesday. 

The deceased was identified as Md. Harun, son of Mohon of the Upazila. 

Lt. Colonel Md. Iqbal Hossain, captain of Sultanpur Battalion of BGB, said that Harun was arrested from Koteshwar area of the Upazila on Monday. 

After gleaning information from Harun, a team of BGB conducted a drive at Adarshagram of Burigram Upazila.

Sensing the presence of elite force members, Harun’s associates opened fire on them, forcing them to fire back, triggering the gunfight which left Harun bullet injured.

Later, the injured was taken to Comilla Medical College Hospital. 2,250 pieces of Yaba tablets were recovered from the spot.
