A suspected drug trader was killed in a gunfight with members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Muradpur Rail crossing area under Panchlaish Thana  Chattogram on Thursday night.
 
The deceased was identified as Ashim Roy Babu, a resident of Banshkhali upazila.
 
RAB said Babu was accused in many cases.
 
Tipped off, a team of RAB -7 conducted a drive in the area to arrest some drug traders around 12am, said Kaji MD Tareque Aziz ASP of Rab-7.
 
During the drive, the elite force members gave a signal to a private car to stop but passengers of the car opened fire on them, forcing them to fire back in self-defence.
 
At one stage, Ashim Babu caught in the line of fire and died on the spot while others passengers of the car drove the car away leaving behind his body.
 
Four RAB members were also injured during the gunfight.
