However, police say the deceased had suffered a stroke during a physical altercation

The driver of a CNG-run autorickshaw was allegedly beaten to death in Kahaloo upazila of Bogra on Sunday.

The deceased was identified as Rezaul Karim, 48, from Erulia Shahpara area in Bogra sadar upazila, police told the Dhaka Tribune.

Police, however, said Rezaul had suffered a stoke during a physical altercation, which caused his death.

According to police sources and witnesses, Rezaul – who drove his autorickshaw on the route between Dargahat, Kahaloo and Charmatha, Bogra to earn his living – was taking passengers in Kahaloo’s Kaliarpukur area at around 5pm on Sunday, when a motorbike rider named Alamgir Hossain, from Kahaloo’s Shikor upazila, signalled to overtake Anwar.

As Rezaul took a while to move, an argument broke out between the duo, which quickly escalated to physical altercation.

At one point, Alamgir left the scene, threatening Rezaul that he would take revenge.

Alamgir went to Dargahat and waited for Rezaul with a stick. When Rezaul reached the place, Alamgir attacked him and started beating him. When Rezaul collapsed, Alamgir fled the scene.

Locals then took Rezaul to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital, where he breathed his last later at night, witnesses said.

When contacted, Kahaloo police station OC Mizanur Rahman said Rezaul had suffered a stroke during the physical altercation with Alamgir, and died in hospital.

No case has been filed regarding the incident as yet, the OC added.

Bogra sadar police station OC SM Badiuzzaman said Rezaul’s body had been handed over to police after an autopsy.

A case may be filed with Kahaloo police station in this regard, the sadar OC said.
