Schoolboy killed in dispute over Tk 5,000

A schoolboy was killed and five of his cousins were injured when their neighbours attacked them at Dasherkandi on the outskirts of the capital yesterday.
Saifuddin Bhuiyan, 16, a student of class-VII in Trimohani Adarsha High School, died instantly as the neighbours attacked him and his cousins with knives and sticks around 2:00pm. He was stabbed in the throat.
Officer-in-charge of Khilgaon Police Station Sheikh Mohammad Abu Jahid said the deceased and his relatives came under attack when they went to the house of Nuruzzaman in their village to protest assault on Alamgir, a cousin of Saifuddin.
In the morning, Nuruzzaman and his family members allegedly assaulted Alamgir when he went to their home to collect Tk 5,000, which Nuruzzaman reportedly owed him.
As the news of Saifuddin's death spread in the neighbourhood, around 200 villagers rushed to the house of Nuruzzaman but he along with his family members had already fled.
The victim's brother Babla Uddin Bhuiyan filed a case accusing six people including Nuruzzaman with Khilgaon Police Station yesterday.
None was arrested in this connection as of midnight despite two police raids in the area.
