Man hacked dead in Jashore

A 33-year-old man has been hacked to death allegedly by miscreants following an altercation at Najir Shankarpur in Jashore town, locals said.

The deceased was identified as Afzal Hossain, a tea stall keeper of the area.

Locals said 14-15 men, aides of Sujan alias Tera Sujan, stabbed Afzal from back at the Najir Shankarpur area around 8am on Sunday following an altercation between Sujan and Afzal a few days ago, leaving him seriously wounded.

When the locals came to resist the bid, they exploded two bombs and fled immediately, witnesses said.

Afzal was later rushed to Jashore General Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.

There are several cases against Sujan who was released from jail around a month ago, said Tajul Islam, officer-in-charge (OC) of Kotwali police station.

“Drives are underway in the area to nab the killers,” said the OC.
