A Nabin League leader was hacked to death in Durgapur municipality area of Netrakona early yesterday.
The deceased was identified as Kawser Talukder, 19, son of late Alal Uddin Talukder of the area, and president of Durgapur upazila unit of Nabin League.
Quoting locals, Officer-in-Charge of Durgapur Police Station Md Mizanur Rahman said Kawser went to a garage to repair his motorbike in the locality around 11:30pm on Monday.
At the time, Mehedi Hasan alias Sahosh, 22, joint secretary of Chhatra Dal Susong Degree College unit, along with his accomplices went to the spot and locked in an altercation with Kawser over precious enmity, said the OC.
Sahosh, son of local BNP leader Monju Mia, hails from the same locality.
At one stage, the miscreants hacked Kawser indiscriminately, leaving him seriously injured, said the police official.
Kawser was taken to Durgapur Upazila Health Complex and later shifted to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital (MMCH) where doctors declared him dead around 1:00am.
On information, police recovered the body and sent it to MMCH for autopsy.
Police detained three people including Sahosh’s grandfather Md Imam Hasan alias Abu Chand, Netrakona district unit BNP’s vice president and former chairman of Chandigarh union parishad, for their alleged involvement in the killing.
Police drives are on to arrest the other accused, the OC added.
Protesting the killing, local Awami League and its front organisations yesterday brought out a procession in the town and demanded immediate arrest and exemplary punishment of the killers.
