The incident took place in front of Gopinathpur High School on Saturday evening

Miscreants have shot a Union Parishad (UP) member dead in Gopalganj Sadar upazila.

The incident took place in front of Gopinathpur High School around 7pm on Saturday.

The deceased is Hamidul Sharif, 45, a member of Ward 7 under Gopinathpur Union Parishad in the upazila.

Sadar police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) (Investigation) Hazrat Ali said Hamidul was returning home in a rickshaw van after closing down his shop at Gopinathpur Bazar.

Miscreants riding a motorcycle intercepted the van when it reached near the school.

They fired at him and left the scene.
