Some miscreants attacked Mizanur in front of his house in Ibrahimpur around 9:30pm, said Aslam Uddin, officer-in-charge of Kafrul Police Station.
Locals rescued a critically injured Mizanur and rushed him to the Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital, the OC said. He was pronounced dead by the doctors at the hospital, he added.
