Female ‘drug pedlar’ found dead in Cox’s Bazar

Police recovered the bullet-hit body of a suspected female drug pedlar in Teknaf upazila of Cox's Bazar district early Sunday.

The deceased was identified as Samuda Begum, 40, wife of late Salam of Satghoripara in the upazila, reports a news agency.

Pradip Kumar Das, officer-in-charge of Teknaf Model Police Station, said police found bullet-hit Samuda lying on the ground at Labonermath in the upazila at around 12:30am.

Later, they took her to the Upazila Health Complex where doctors pronounced her dead.

Prima facie, it seemed that Samuda was killed as a sequel to internal conflict between the drug pedlars, the OC said, adding that police also seized 6,000 Yaba pills from the spot.
