Nazrul Islam was involved in the trade of rods and steel at Dhandhi market in the union.

According to Asma Akhter, the wife of the deceased, Nazrul was on his way to conduct business in the Bhulta Gauchia area of Rupganj. While taking an autorickshaw from the bus stand, an argument ensued between Nazrul and the autorickshaw driver, Zakir Hossain, and lineman Dayan, when the autorickshaw was waiting for more passengers.

Other autorickshaw drivers at the stand reportedly joined in beating Nazrul. After becoming unconscious, he was rescued and taken to the Araihazar Upazila Health Complex, where he was pronounced dead by the doctor, she added.

The exact reason for the altercation is yet to be determined, and an investigation is underway.
