An alleged drug dealer has been shot dead by the Rapid Action Battalion or RAB during a reported shootout at Ice Factory Road in Chittagong.

A bag containing around 0.20 million (200,000) yaba tablets, two pistols and a single-shooter gun have been recovered from site of the firing, said RAB-7 ASP Mimtanur Rahman on Friday, reports bdnews24.com.

A RAB team came to learn that drug dealers were assembling in the Ice Factory Road at Barisal colony and decided to conduct a night raid, he said.

"The drug dealers started firing at RAB, prompting the law enforcers to fire back. The firing stopped after some time and a bullet-hit body was found in the location."

The suspect has been identified as Mohammad Hossain, according to a National ID found in the man's wallet. The 42-year-old hails from Patia in Chittagong.

The bag containing illegal drug yaba and the firearms were found during search, added the RAB official.
