An alleged drug trader was killed in a “gunfight” between two groups of drug traders at Dhalaghat village in Chattogram's Patiya upazila early yesterday.

The victim, Kamal Hasan, 36, was a resident of the upazila's Moddhom Hunain village.

Niamat Ullah, officer-in-charge of Patiya Police Station, said they               had raided Dhalaghat Chandra               Kalar Bridge on information that two groups of drug traders were engaged in a gunfight around 2:00am.

A firearm, two rounds of bullet and 800 pieces of yaba pills were recovered from the spot, he said.
