Police say Mohammad Hanif died during a clash between supporters of Awami League and BNP candidates in Noakhali 4 constituency

An Awami Jubo League leader was reportedly murdered by unidentified miscreants in Noakhali Sadar upazila on Tuesday afternoon.

According to witnesses, Mohammad Hanif, 24, was hacked indiscriminately with sharp weapons and shot in his legs by the assailants around 4:45pm in Dakkhin Char Shullukia village at the upazila’s Aujbalia union.

Locals had rushed him to Noakhali General Hospital, but duty doctors declared him dead on arrival.

Hanif was the general secretary of the ruling party youth wing's Ward No 9 unit in Aujbalia union.

The hospital’s Resident Medical Officer Dr Syed Mohiuddin Abdul Azim said: “Hanif was dead by the time he was brought in.

“There were chilli powder on his eyes and face, sharp weapon wounds all over his body and gunshot wounds on his legs.”

Sudharam police station Officer-in-Charge Anwar Hossain told the Dhaka Tribune that Hanif’s body was later sent to the morgue for an autopsy, while preparation to start a case over the incident was underway.

He also said that supporters of Awami League's Noakhali 4 constituency candidate Mohammed Ekramul Karim Chowdhury and BNP's Md Shahjahan had locked into a clash over holding their respective rallies as part of polls campaign, leaving Hanif dead, reports UNB.

Witnesses also said that Ekramul’s followers were preparing to organize a rally in an open field in Dakkhin Char Shullukia village while Shahjahan's supporters were holding a meeting at a nearby ground.

At one stage, both groups brought out processions and attacked each other, reports UNB.

Ekramul, who is also the current Noakhali 4 MP and district Awami League unit’s general secretary, at a press conference later in the evening, claimed that the attack was carried out by leaders and activists of BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami.

The men who attacked and killed Hanif were led by district Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal unit Secretary Rizvi and following orders of former Aujbalia union Parishad chairman Shahjahan, alleged Ekramul.
