We extend Panella and Roy’s  work for massless Dirac particles with position-dependent (PD) velocity. We consider Dirac particles where the mass and velocity are both position-dependent. Bound states in the continuum (BIC)-like and discrete bound state solutions are reported. It is observed that BIC-like solutions are not only feasible for the ultra-relativistic (massless) Dirac particles but also for Dirac particles with PDmass and PD-velocity that satisfy the condition m(x) v F2 (x) = A, where A ≥ 0 is constant. Dirac Pöschl-Teller and harmonic oscillator models are also reported.
