Police have found the body of a man along with thousands of contraband Yaba tablets and a firearm after what locals said was a gunfight in Cox’s Bazar.
Mostak Ahmad, alias Haji Mufiz, was found on a hill behind Uttaran neighbourhood in the early hours of Friday.
The 32-year-old Mostak was accused in several cases of trading Yaba tablets, said Cox’s Bazar Police Inspector (investigation) Bakhtiar Uddin Chowdhury.
A gun, three rounds of ammos and 2,400 methamphetamine-based Yaba tablets were also recovered from the spot.
Police arrived at the location after locals informed them about a 'gunfight', said the inspector.
"We suspect two groups of Yaba sellers exchanged shots over trade dispute. They fled as soon as police reached there."
The body has been sent to the state-run hospital of the district for autopsy.
