Rohingya man killed in Cox's Bazar 'gunfight'

A Rohingya man was killed and two others injured in an alleged gunfight over ‘territorial dominance’ between rival factions at Nayapara refugee camp's Block H in Cox’s Bazar’s Teknaf Upazila early Sunday.

Police said the dead man was a resident of Nayapara refugee camp but the law enforcement agency could not immediately confirm his identity.

The injured, identified as Shamsul Alam and Mohammad Faisal, are residents of the same camp, said the OC.

Teknaf Police OC Pradip Kumar Das said two groups of Rohingya refugees were embroiled a gunfight in a bid to establish dominance at the camp.

Being infirmed, a police team rushed scene but the assailants fled upon the arrival of law enforcers.

The body has been sent to Cox’s Bazar Sadar Hospital’s morgue for autopsy, he added.
