Four held in Sirajganj journo killing
They were detained during drives in Chhoiani village on Friday midnight. Of the arrestees, Awami League’s upazila unit member KM Nasir Uddin is an accused in the case filed over the killing of journalist Shimul. Abul Hasnat, additional superintendent of police in Shahjadpur, said Nasir is an accused in the case while three others were detained for their suspected involvement. Abdul Hakim Shimul, upazila correspondent of the Daily Samakal, was shot by the Shajadpur municipality mayor during a clash between two groups of the ruling Awami League on Thursday. He succumbed to injuries while being shifted to Dhaka around 1pm Friday. Journalist Shimul’s wife Nurun Nahar filed a murder case against 18 people including municipality mayor Halimul Haque Miru and his brothers Pintu and Mintu. Mayor Halimul’s brothers Pintu and Mintu were arrested on Friday in another case filed by Shahjadpur Government College unit Chhatra League President Bijoy Mahmud’s uncle Ershad Ali over the attack on Bijoy. Hearing that Bijoy was attacked by the mayor’s brother Pintu, the supporters of Bijoy and local people cordoned off the mayor’s house and started hurling bricks on Thursday. At one point, the mayor opened fire from his shotgun that left journalist Shimul injured. However, Mayor Halimul claimed that bullets were fired from both the sides. But the police in primary investigation have found that bullets were fired only from the mayor’s gun.
