Man killed in Sirajganj upazila post-poll violence

A 45-year-old man, who was wounded in a post-polls attack allegedly by the supporters of a rival group in Sirajganj's Belkuchi upazila on May 8, succumbed to his injuries on Sunday night.

The victim was identified as Abdul Alim, son of late Haider Ali, a resident of Kamarpara village under the upazila. Abdul Alim was the uncle of the defeated chairman candidate, Badiuzzaman Fakir.
Following the incident,  police have arrested Chan Mia, 60, his son Rasel, 22, and his elder brother Abul Hossain, 65, of the same village, in connection with the murder.

Mohammad Anisur Rahman, officer-in-charge (OC), of Belkuchi Police Station, confirmed the matter and said that Abdul Alim was a supporter of Badiuzzaman Fakir, one of the chairman candidates with the motorcycle symbol of the Belkuchi Upazila Parishad election.

After winning on Wednesday, the supporters of Aminul Islam Sarkar, led by UP member Khaleq, attacked Abdul Alim and severely beat him up.

Locals rescued him and took him to the Belkuchi Upazila Health Complex where the physicians referred him to Khawaja Yunus Ali Medical College Hospital.

As his condition deteriorated there, he died on the way to Dhaka on Sunday night, added the OC.

Later, a case was filed against seven people following a complaint lodged by Alamgir Hossain with Belkuchi police.

"We have already arrested three people, and the operation is on to arrest the rest of the accused," said the OC.
