Human trafficker shot dead in Bangladesh

Dhaka, June 8 (IANS) A Rohingya man accused of human trafficking has been shot dead in Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar town, police said here on Monday.

“The bullet-ridden body of 30-year-old Aman Ullah Anu was found at Ali Khali Laban field near a Rohingya refugee camp,” a police official said.

Police are assuming that the Myanmar national might have been killed by other members of his trafficking ring following a row over sharing of money, bdnews24 reported.

“Anu is a member of the gang that smuggles people to Thailand and Malaysia. He is accused in eight cases of human trafficking,” the official said.

Originally from Myanmar’s Maungdaw, Anu lived in Nayaparha Rohingya camp at Cox’s Bazar.

“We’ve found out that two rival factions of smugglers, in a row over money, exchanged fire in the morning. Teknaf police found the body at 8 a.m. after reaching the site,” the official added.

Two firearms, bullet casings and two notebooks were found at the incident spot.
