GOPALGANJ : A Juba League leader was killed as assailants hurled a bomb targeting his motorbike in Bherarbazar village early Sunday.
The victim is identified as Rezaul Karim Shahin Khan, 40, Haridaspur union Juba League organizing secretary and also a member of Gopalganj district sports association.
Family sources said, “Some unidentified assailants hurled a bomb targeting Shahin’s motorbike on Saturday night while he was returning home, leaving him critically injured.”
He was rushed to Gopalganj Sadar Hospital immediate after the attack.
As his condition deteriorated, he was shifted to Khulna Medical College Hospital (KMCH) where he died while undergoing treatment early Sunday.
Rezaul’s wife Lavli Begum told banglanews, “One Hashmat Ali might have launched the bomb attack over previous enmity.”
Gopalganj Sadar Thana OC (investigation) Motiar Rahman told banglanews, “We can’t say if it was a bomb attack or something else before investigation.”
