A 42-year-old Rohingya was shot dead allegedly by assailants at the Balukhali camp in the Ukhiya of Cox’s Bazar on Wednesday evening.

The deceased was identified as Mohammad Shah, a resident of Modhur Chhora camp-17 in Balukhali.

The deceased’s wife Sazeda Begum said that the assailants shot Mohammad Shah while talking over the phone near a shop in the camp in the Modhur Chhora area at 5:00pm on Wednesday and fled immediately.

Later, he was rushed to Cox’s Bazar Sadar Hospital where doctors declared him dead on arrival, said Sheikh Md Ali, officer-in-charge of the Ukhiya police station.

He added that the body was kept in the hospital morgue for an autopsy.

"Efforts are on to identify and nab the killers,” said the OC.
