Jagannath University student Nazimuddin Samad, who was killed by suspected militants in Dhaka on Wednesday night, has been laid to rest at his village home in Sylhet, his family says. His body was taken to Boraut village in Bianibazar on yesterday morning. He was buried at his family graveyard after a namaz-e-janaza at the local mosque, his uncle Sadek Ahmed Sajal said. Nazim, fifth among his seven siblings, was also a pro-Awami League activist. He campaigned for secularism on Facebook and was critical of radical Islamists, his friends said. A pall of gloom descended on the village when his body was taken there. His mother and sisters fainted several times while mourning his loss. The 28-year-old, also a Gonojagoron Moncho activist, was hacked and shot to death by suspected radicals at Sutrapur. Police say the pattern of the attack resembled recent assaults by banned militant outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team and that the killers were professionals. No militant organisation has claimed responsibility. Meanwhile, a murder case was filed with Sutrapur police on Thursday night by Sub-Inspector Nurul Islam, Investigation Officer Inspector Samir Chandra Sutrodhor said. Samir told Dhaka Tribune that they were investigating the case considering all possible aspects. Police also quizzed Sohel Ahmed, who went for a walk with the victim before the attack. Shop owners near the murder spot have also been questioned. “We are still looking into the matter,” the police officer said. “We are yet to make any breakthrough.”
