Three Rohingyas die in Teknaf shootout

Three Rohingya refugees with links to crime have been killed in a so-called shootout with law enforcers during a police drive to rescue an abducted child in Cox’s Bazar’s Teknaf Upazila.

The incident occurred in the early hours of Friday on the hills behind the Leda Rohingya Camp in the upazila’s Hnila Union, said Teknaf Police OC Pradeep Kumar Saha.

The dead were all members of an organised kidnapping racket that had abducted a three-year-old child from the Leda Camp a few days ago, according to the police. They had demanded a ransom of Tk 500,000 from the child's parents.
