Mystery shrouds the death of Jubo League men

Law enforcers are saying that the trio might have been killed by their rivals while family members claiming that they were shot dead by RAB personnel, as members of the elite force had picked them up from Natore the day before they were found dead in Dinajpur.

Meanwhile, the three Jubo League activists were laid to rest at Kanaikhali graveyard yesterday afternoon.

Before burial, namaz-e-Janaza of the deceased was held at Kanaikhali playground.

Shafiqul Islam Shimul, MP of Natore Sadar constituency, district unit Jubo League Secretary Ruhul Amin Biplob, Gurudaspur municipality Mayor Shahnewaz Molla and numerous leaders and activists of the Jubo League, Awami League and Chhatra League took part in the Janaza.

MP Shimul said after hearing their kidnap news, he contacted with Dhaka, Rajshahi and Natore RAB offices and police stations seeking trace of them, but nobody knew the matter. After two days of the kidnap, they were found dead in Dinajpur.

I have already informed the matter to the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and she assured me that she will look into the matter.

Sabbir and Shohel were active members of Jubo League and Abdullah was not accused even in any single case, why he faced murder?”

He also vowed to go on tougher movement, if the mystery behind the death would not be solved immediately.

Surovi Akter, sister of Sabbir, said her mother had been in bed since she heard death news.

Shohel's mother Sakhina Bewa claimed that the RAB members had killed her son.

The bullet-riddled bodies of the three were found in Kolabaria area under Ghoraghat upazila of Dinajpur on Monday.

Later, Natore unit Jubo League, the youth front of the ruling party Awami League recognised Redwan Ahmed Sabbir, 25, son of Sona Mia, Abdullah, 25, son of Lutfor Rahman Lopu and Sohel, 27, son of Kalo Miah, as their activists.

Officer-in-Charge of Ghoraghat police station Nuruzzaman Chowdhury said: “On information from locals, a team of police went to the spot in Kolabaria area in the morning and recovered the bodies.”

Hamidul Alam, superintendent of Dinajpur police, then said miscreants might have killed them over previous enmity.

After recovery of the bodies, families said some people identifying themselves as RAB personnel picked them up on Saturday. Since, he remained missing.
