A Jubo League activist was stabbed to death allegedly by his rivals in Pirojpur Sadar upazila yesterday.
The victim is Shakil Ahmed Ashis, 40, of Daudpur village in the upazila.
His family members said Ashis went to Pirojpur judges' court to appear in a murder case along with other accused.
They alleged that around 12:30pm, some 10 to 15 men, who are Shakil's opposition in the case, waylaid and stabbed him in Koibortokhali village when he was returning home alone by motorbike.
Locals took Shakil to Pirojpur Sadar Hospital. He died when he was being shifted to Khulna Medical College Hospital around 3:30pm.
Mollah Azad Hossain, additional superintendent of Pirojpur police, said Ashis was murdered over a previous enmity. “We are trying to arrest the culprits.”
On January 11, 2016, some youths stabbed Sajidul Haque Joy, 23, son of late Ziaul Haque Mridha of Daudpur village, to death. Ashis was one of the accused in the case.
