Quoting local people, Md Fayzur Rahman, officer in charge (OC) of Pagla Police Station in Gafargaon, said Mokbul Hossain of the same area and his men locked in an altercation with Alamgir over sharing money of a stolen battery-run easy-bike in the afternoon.

At one stage of altercation, they stabbed Alamgir indiscriminately, leaving him injured.

Critically injured Alamgir was rushed to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital (MMCH) where he succumbed to his injuries.

The body was sent to MMCH for autopsy, said the OC, adding that none was arrested as of filing this report around 7:00pm yesterday.

Both Alamgir and Mukbul were accused in several criminals cases lodged with the police station, said the police official.

In Madaripur, a farmer was stabbed to death allegedly by his cousins at Motbari village in Rajor upazila on Tuesday night, reports our Faridpur correspondent.

The victim was identified as Mujibur Rahman Beparri, 50, son of late Nawab Ali Beparri of the village.

Police arrested one Abdul Kaker, 52, son of Islam Morol of the same village, in connection with the incident.

Locals said there was a longstanding conflict between Zahidur Rahman, chairman of Amgram union parishad (UP), and Zamir Khan, former chairman of the same UP, over establishing supremacy in the locality.

Mujibur Rahman was a supporter of Zamir Khan. On the other hand, Mujibur Rahman’s cousins Jewel Bepari, Linkon Bepari and Ashraf Ali are the supporters of Zahidur Rahman.

Mujibur and his cousins often locked into clashes over local politics and family feud.

As a sequel to the conflict, Rubel Bepari, son of Mujibur, locked into an altercation with Li nkon at a local mosque during Maghrib prayer on Tuesday.

After the incident, Linkon along with his other brothers attacked Mujibur and stabbed him, leaving him critically injured when he was saying Tarabi prayers around 8:30pm.

They left the scene immediately after the attack. Mujibur was rushed to Rajor Upazila Health Complex where on-duty doctor declared him dead.

Nasima Begum, the victim’s wife, said “Earlier, Jewel, Linkon and Ashraf Ali attacked my husband twice to kill him. They killed my husband and I want justice.”

Zamir Khan said “Mujibur Rahman was my supporter. I want justice for his murder.”

Zahidur Rahman said, “I have no involvement with this murder. The incident took place over family feud.”

OC Md Sahajahan Mia of Rajor Police Station, said a man was arrested in connection with the killing.
