Two teenagers were stabbed last night in the capital's Hatirjheel by unidentified miscreants.
Later, one of them succumbed to his injuries at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), said police.
The deceased was identified as Shipon (18), an employee of a motor mechanic shop.
His co-worker Manik (16) is undergoing treatment at DMCH with wounds in his right hand and chest.
The victims were out on a motorbike, and were standing near Begunbari around 8:15pm, when four to five youths arrived there and started stabbing them indiscriminately, said Abdul Khan, assistant sub-inspector of DMCH police outpost.
Locals rushed the two to a hospital in Moghbazar, said Shipon's sister Sumaiya Akhter. Their family then brought them to DMCH. She also said her brother's stomach bore marks of multiple stabs.
Shipon died at the hospital around 11:45pm, said Abdul Khan.
Police are suspecting that they might have been attacked due to previous enmity.
The body was kept at the Dhaka Medical College morgue until filing of the report at 12:30am.
