A physically disabled Rohingya youth has been hacked and shot to death in Cox's Bazar's Ukhiya upazila, reports bdnews24.com.

The victim is Md Asadullah (35), a resident in Ukhiya's Rohingya camp no. 20.

The incident took place on a bridge next to the camp around 10:00 pm on Sunday.

According to Superintendent of Police Md Arefin Jewel, the deputy captain of APBn-14, at least 10 to 15 criminals entered the camp through the Lal Pahar road and took Asadullah to the bridge.

"The criminals fled the scene after hacking and shooting him to death," said Jewel.

Asadullah's body was later recovered and sent to the morgue for an autopsy report by Ukhiya police.

Initial reports suggest that Asadullah was killed for passing on information about the whereabouts of the criminals to the police.

"An investigation is ongoing to identify those involved in the murder," said SP Jewel.
