Assailants dragged Shahzahan Bachchu out of a shop and shot him

The owner of Bishaka Prokashoni, a publishing house, has been gunned down in his home town in Munshiganj.

Shahzahan Bachchu, 60, was shot and killed in his village, Kakaldi, in the district's Sirajdikhan upazila around 6:30pm on Monday, Munshiganj Superintendent of Police Jayedul Alam told the Dhaka Tribune.

There were five assailants on two motorcycles, the SP said.

Shahzahan had gone to meet friends at a pharmacy near his home before iftar, when the assailants came into the area. They blasted a crude bomb outside the pharmacy, creating panic.

They then dragged Shahzahan out and shot him, Jayedul said. 

“That is what we know so far. Because they were on motorcycles, police have set up checkpoints on the roads. No one has been detained so far,” he said.

The dead body was in the custody of Sirajdikhan police station when this report was filed last night.

Shahzahan was the former Munshiganj unit general secretary of the Communist Party of Bangladesh. His publishing house Bishaka is based in Dhaka's Banglabazar area.
