A drug dealer died while his cohort was arrested during a buy-bust operation Tuesday in Taguig City.
Supt. Elizabeth Jasmin, spokesperson of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), identified the slain man as Anwar Hassan alias “Patrick” while his cohort was identified as Junior Cabalo.
Jasmin said members of the Southern Metro Manila Criminal Investigation and Detection Team mounted the operation to get Hassan who is included in the police drug list.
Hassan sensed that he was transacting with policemen and he opened fire.
Jasmin said recovered from Hassan were a plastic sachet of suspected shabu, drug paraphernalia and a .38 caliber revolver.
