Local influentials chopped a man’s two fingers off as he protested an incident of harassment to a mentally challenged teenager in Jamalpur.

The incident took place at Dhararchar Noyapara village in Bakshiganj upazila of Jamalpur around 11am on Sunday.

The victim, one, Samad said local influentials Nur Islam, Zia Mia, Amil Haque, Ali Hossain, and their men were angry at him and his uncle Soru Miya, as on Saturday they spoke against the influentials' verbal and physical abuse to mentally challenged Biplob Miya, 17.

On Sunday, the influentials ambushed Soru Miya in the village. Hearing Soru scream, Samad rushed to the spot and the assailants cut two of Samad's fingers and tried to do the same with Soru, according to Samad.

Two locals were injured when they intervened at one point during the attack. Afterwards, Samad and Soru were taken to Bakshiganj Upazila Health Complex, where they are  currently undergoing treatment.

Police arrested Nur Islam, after Samad filed a case against nine people  with Bakshiganj police station.

Bakshiganj police station Sub-Inspector Abdul Aziz said: "Nur Islam will be produced before court. We are trying to arrest the other accused in the case."
