Rivals kill Khulna criminal
A 'listed criminal', who came out of Khulna district jail on last Wednesday, was hacked to death by his rivals at about 10:00pm on Saturday at Kashipur under Khalishpur police station of Khulna city. He was identified as Abu Saled, 28, son of Zainal Abedin, a worker of state-owned Crescent Jute Mill at Khalishpur. The murder was committed as a sequel to rivalry over establishing supremacy in the area, police and locals said. According to police, a group of young men kidnapped Abu Saleh from Khalishpur Chitrali Bazar in the morning and later chopped him to death behind Kashipur graveyard. The gang had a quarrel with Saleh on Saturday afternoon, said OC Munirul Gias. Abu Saleh was an activist of Jubo Dal and accused in four criminal cases, the OC added.
