A case was filed on Wednesday in connection with the killing of an elderly Hindu priest in Sadar upazila.

Arun Ganguli, son of priest Anando Gopal Ganguly, filed the case with Sadar Police Station.

Meanwhile, two officials of Indian High Commission in Dhaka visited the residence of Anando Gopal.

Rajesh Ukaiah, first secretary of the Indian High Commission and Consular Rama Kanta Gupta, met the family members of the priest around 11 am and conveyed their deep sympathies to them.

Altaf Hossain, superintendent of Jhenidah police, Joyonta Sen Dipu, central president of Hindu, Buddhist and Christian Oikya Parishad,
Nirmal Chatarjee, its joint general secretary, were present during their visit.

Later, the Indian High Commission officials met members of law enforcement agencies at the office of the police super.

Police Super Altaf Hossain said, “There is no IS link to the killing, and a vested quarter is issuing statements in its name for spreading panic in Bangladesh. Police are trying to arrest the miscreants.”

Joyonta Sen Dipu, central president of Hindu, Buddhists and Christian Oikya Parishad, said, “If we don’t get justice we’ll call for a greater movement.”

On Tuesday morning, Anando Gopal Ganguly, 70, was murdered by unknown assailants at Sonaikhali village in Sadar upazila.
