Mehedi killed over supremacy: Police

No case filed, none arrested yet
Staff Reporter, Ctg

Police suspect that Mehedi Hassan Badal, a former leader of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), was shot to death in the city as a sequel to enmity over establishing supremacy in the locality. Also listed as a top terrorist by Bayezid police station, Mehedi was gunned down by a gang of miscreants in front of his residence at Shersha in the city on Tuesday night. Although police could not confirm the exact motive behind the killing, they suspect that the listed terrorist was gunned down as a sequel to previous rivalry over establishing domain in the area.
“Mehedi had been widely infamous for his involvement in various terrorist activities for the last 20 years and he was accused in five cases filed only with Bayezid police station. The prima facie evidence shows that Mehedi was killed by professional killers,” said Firoz Uddin Chowdhury, sub-inspector of the police station. Locals said that three terrorists-- Mehedi Hasan Badal, SM Shafiqul Islam and Abdul Quddus Bappi-- had formed three separate groups of their own and they had established a reign of terror in Bayezid Industrial Area with the help of several hundred associates.
Shafi is known as a leader of the UAE chapter of AL while Quddus is known as the joint secretary of Jalalabad ward AL. Interestingly enough, all the three listed terrorist leaders are known to be followers of the incumbent city mayor AJM Nasir Uddin.  
Mehedi is known to be the former president of Chittagong Polytechnic Institute chapter of the BCL. Though he used to identify himself as a leader of the city Juba League, he actually did not have any portfolio in the party.  Mohiuddin Bachchu, convener of the city unit of Juba League, told The Independent that Mehedi did not belong to the youth front of the ruling party as he did not have any post.   According to police and locals, Mehedi used to control all sorts of criminal activities, including extortion, land grabbing, mugging, tender manipulation and narcotics business in Bayezid area. On many occasions, the three terrorist groups locked into armed clashes with each other as a sequel to establishing supremacy in the area. Following the city corporation polls on April 30 this year, Mehedi and SM Illias, brother of SM Shafiqul Islam, locked into an clash in Shershah Colony area of the city. Three policemen received bullet injuries while 10 others sustained severe injuries during the fight.
Following the clash, police arrested Mehedi on charge of assaulting policemen. However, he managed to come out of jail on bail later. “Mehedi has become a victim of political vendetta as he was very close to AJM Nasir. The intimacy with AJM Nasir might have enraged his rivals,” said Farid Ahmed Chowdhury, immediate past councillor of Jalalabad ward. “On several occasions, AJM Nasir tried to resolve the misunderstanding among the three feuding leaders- Mehedi, Shafi and Quddus. It is the petty personal interest for which Mehedi had to die an unnatural death,” added the former ward councillor.
