An unidentified body was found in the Rahmaterbil border area of Ukhiya upazila in Cox’s Bazar on Thursday night amid ongoing clashes between Myanmar army and armed rebel groups in the country.
The body was found around 9:30 pm in the Rahmaterbil border area of Ukhiya’s Thaingkhali.
Ukhiya Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Md Shamim Hossain confirmed the matter.
He said that members of the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) informed him about the body lying in the bordering area.
However, it was advised by the BGB to recover the body in the morning and avoid it at night, he said.
Earlier on Tuesday, 137 members of Myanmar’s force fled Myanmar through the Rahmaterbil border and took shelter in Bangladesh.
On that day, the border area was tense with firing and on the following day, there was intermittent firing on the border.
Gunshots were heard around 5 am on Thursday.
