Man beaten dead for ‘involvement in extra-marital affair’ in Gazipur

A 37-year old man was beaten to death by some locals at Kaliganj upazila in Gazipur for his suspected involvement in an extra-marital affair on Saturday.

The deceased was Sohel Bhuiyan, a resident of Dakshinbag village in the upazila.

Sohel, who suffered serious injuries after being beaten by locals, succumbed to his injuries on Saturday morning at Kaliganj Upazila Health Complex, said Mintu Mia, Officer-in-Charge of Kaliganj police station.

Sohel’s brother Sohag said around 9 pm Friday Jubayel Bhuiyan, his daughter Jemy bhuiyan, Shukur Ali and Mamun took Sohel from his own house alleging that he is involved in an extra-marital affair with a woman living in the neighborhood.

They took him to Mnjur’s house in the area and started beating him after tying him up with a tree, said Sohel.

Informed by the locals, Azad Parvez, Sub-Inspector of Kaliganj police station came with a team around 1 am and took Sohel to the hospital.

OC Mintu Mia said the body was sent for an autopsy and legal action in this regard will be taken after receiving a complaint.

Deceased’s brother Sohag said his brother had an affair with a local girl named Jerin and he got upset since her family married off Jerin to a man living in Jamalpur.

“My brother just used to go and sit beside Jerin’s father’s house. He was not involved in any extra-marital affair,” said Sohag.
