1 killed in N’ganj AL infighting over thwarting BNP

An activist of ruling Awami League was shot to death and at least five other activists received injuries in a clash between its two factions in Kanchan Bridge area of Rupganj upazila in Narayanganj district on Thursday.

The deceased was identified as Mohammad Sujon, son of Monu Miah, resident of Rupshi Gobindapur village of the Kayetpara union.

Witnesses said two groups of AL-men - one supporting Kayetpara Union Chairman Rafiqul Islam and the other supporting local MP Gazi Golam Dastagir - took positions in the bridge area around 11am to obstruct BNP leaders and activists.

Their aim was to thwart any probable BNP 'disturbances' centring verdict against Khaleda Zia. But at one stage, the supporters of both groups locked into an altercation among themselves over establishing supremacy in the area.

Both groups took part in chase and counter chase and hurled brick chips.

To bring the situation under control, police opened fire and opened tear shell.

The clash left six including Sujon bullet injured.

Later, the injured were taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) where doctors declared Sujon dead around 1:30pm, said sub-inspector Bacchu Miah, in-charge of DMCH police outpost.

Besides, 50 supporters of the both party were injured in the clash.

Police detained 30 people from the spot.

Though some locals claimed that Sujon was killed in police firing, Superintendent of Narayanganj Police Moinul Haque denied the allegation. unb
