Patiya police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Rezaul Karim Majumder said supporters of councillor candidates -- Sarwar Kamal and Mannan -- locked into a clash in front of the polling centre around 12:30pm.

Mabud was stabbed during the clash and rushed to Patiya Upazila Health Complex where the on-duty physician declared him dead, the OC said. 

Police have brought the situation under control in the polling area, he added.
