Two activists, one each of BNP and Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) have been killed in separate incidents in Comilla.

The incident occurred in the Chandina and Nangalkot upazilas of the district.

The deceased are LDP activist Mojibur Rahman, 35, and BNP activist Bachchu Mia, 48.

According to sources, Mojibur was shot by police around 11am Sunday, in an incident that also saw two more voters – Faruk Mia, 38, and Rahad, 24 – suffering bullet wounds.

LDP Secretary General Redwan Ahmed said: “Awami League members took over 75 of the 83 centres in Chandina. Only the west Belaswar area was seeing fair voting. However, once the presiding officer there saw that ‘sheaf of paddy’ was getting more votes, he asked voters to stand down. When they refused, he ordered police to shoot at them.

“Three people were shot during this incident, and one died,” he added.

However, Presiding Officer Humayun Kabir Bhuiyan said: “The incident took place when BNP leaders and activists entered the voting centre and tried to take ballot papers by force.”

Chandina police station Officer-in-Charge Md Abu Faisal corroborated the presiding officer’s version of events, adding that BNP and LDP members also attacked the police while trying to get away with the ballot paper – causing police to shoot in self-defence.

Meanwhile, in Nangalkot upazila, BNP activist Bachchu was allegedly beaten to death.

According to sources, miscreants stopped him while he was on his way to Moorgaon Government Primary School, and proceeded to beat him up on the street with hockey sticks. He then died on the way to Nangolkot Upazila Health Complex.

BNP blamed ruling party men for the incident, but Nangalkot OC Nazrul Islam said the assailants could not be identified.
