An Awami League (AL) leader, who was injured in an attack allegedly by some of his party rivals in Jessore town on November 6, died at a hospital in Dhaka on Wednesday night.
The deceased, Sardar Milon, organising secretary of Basundia union unit of AL, was son of Babu Sardar of Padmabila village in Jessore Sadar upazila.
Habibul Ahsan Bablu, general secretary of Basundia union unit AL, said critically injured Milon was first admitted to Jessore Sadar Hospital and later shifted to National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation (popularly known as Pangu Hospital) in the capital following deterioration of his condition.
After the namaz-e-janaza, he was laid to eternal rest at his family graveyard at Padmabila village yesterday afternoon, Bablu said.
Inspector Motiur Rahman of Sadar Police Outpost said, after recovering a bit, Milon filed a case against 10 to 15 unnamed people with Kotwali Police Station.
According to the case statement, Milon attended an anti-terrorism rally organised by district unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), protesting the murder of local BCL leader Emon, in Daratana area in the town on November 6.
After the rally, while he was returning home along with some BCL activists, a group of 10 to 15 people chased him in front of Haji Muhammad Mohsin Road around 5:30pm.
At one stage, the gang caught Milon and stabbed him indiscriminately and left the place hurriedly, leaving him critically injured.
Hearing screams, local people rescued Milon and admitted him to Jessore Medical College Hospital, from where he was shifted to Pangu Hospital in the capital.
Inspector Matiur, also investigation officer of the case, said they are yet to arrest anyone in this connection.
