Jubo League leader hacked to death
A union-level Jubo League leader was hacked to death and two others were injured as their "rivals" attacked them at Pakshey of Ishwardi upazila on Thursday night.
Police suspected that enmity over establishing dominance in the area was the reason behind the attack.
The dead, Shajahan Ali, 42, was the vice-president of Pakshey union unit of Jubo League, youth wing of the ruling Awami League. He was the son of late Mohammad Ali of Rooppur village.
Abdul Hai, officer-in-charge of Ishwardi Police Station, said the criminals attacked Shajahan when he was returning home around 11:00pm. When his party colleagues -- Ashraful Islam and Abul Hossain -- tried to save him, the attackers also hacked them.
The injured were taken to Ishwardi Upazila Health Complex. But Shajahan's condition worsened. He died on his way to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital, the OC said.
In primary investigation, police came to know that Shajahan had a longstanding conflict with Nobin of the same village over establishing supremacy, the police official said.
The attackers were men of Nobin, said the OC, adding that police were trying to detain them.
Additional police were deployed in the area to avoid any further untoward incident, he added.
