“Mohibul cut several banana trees owned by Abu Taher of the village as the shade of the trees was causing damage to a paddy field of Mohibul. Angered by the incident, Taher and his men caught Mohibul and brought him to Maricha Union Parishad Chairman Shah Alam for salish (local arbitration) on Wednesday afternoon,” said Nazrul Islam, officer in charge (OC) of Daulatpur Police Station.

During the arbitration, men of Abu Taher and his brother Piltu attacked  Mohibul in presence of the chairman at about 4:30pm.

They stabbed Mohibul with sharp weapons, leaving him badly injured.

Mohibul was rushed to Daulatpur Upazila Health Complex and later shifted to Kushtia General Hospital where he died at about 11:30pm.

A murder case was filed against eight people and police continued drives to arrest the killers, the OC said.
