A 67-year old woman died after falling ill early on Friday when she tried to save her son from an attack during a conflict that originated from electoral violence and previous enmity at Baraid area in Badda of the capital.

The deceased, Rokeya Begum died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) after she was taken there by her grandson Faysal.

During the conflict, deceased's son Alamgir Hossain, 40 was also injured.

Confirming the matter, Badda police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Parvez Islam said there was no injury marks on the deceased's body.

He said: "Rokeya Begum might have died from hypertension when her family was attacked by the local opponents."

Her body was sent to DMCH morgue for autopsy and the actual cause of her death will be revealed after the autopsy report, the police official added.

Ever since the city corporation election, the area has been divided into two factions of the ruling party and conflicts between each other is ongoing. However, we detained Jahid, 58 and his son Nur Alam, 35 for their alleged involvement in this incident. We are investigating the matter, OC Parvez further said.

Deceased's grandson Faysal said their home is under ward number 42 of Dhaka North City Corporation and his uncle Alamgir was a supporter of the Awami League nominee councillor Jahangir Alam in the last city corporation election.

Opponents have often been attacking and threatening them after Jahangir Alam was defeated by the Awami League rebel candidate Ayub Ansar Mintu, he added.

At around 9:30 pm on Thursday, 15-20 people including Jahid, Nur Alam, Emdad, Asadul, and Hasidul attacked their house and tried to kill his uncle Alamgir. During this, his grandmother Rokeya had fallen ill while trying to save her son from the attackers, said Faysal.

Later, Rokeya was taken to a local hospital at first, and then she was referred to DMCH where duty doctors declared her dead at 2 am yesterday, he added.

Previously, a day after the election of Dhaka North City Corporation, supporters of the winning councillor candidate in ward number 42 vandalized the house of the defeated candidate Jahangir Alam.

Besides that, Masranga Television Reporter Hasnain Tanvir and Cameraman Saiful Islam were beaten and their cars and cameras were vandalized at the time by Mintu's supporters while collecting news on the incident.
