Family members alleged UP chairman was behind the killing
A man was reportedly hacked to death by his rivals in Sadar upazila of Comilla on Wednesday.
The deceased identified as Parvez Hossain, 27, was the son of Abdul Mobin from Sayedpur village of the upazila.
Chan Miah, the deceased's uncle alleged, Parvez was the follower of Kalir Bazar Union Parishad Chairman Sikandar Ali. As Parvez recently defected from the group, the chairman had been threatening him to rejoin the group.
However, Parvez did not agree. As a result, Sikandar and his men abducted Parvez and hacked him to death at Kalir Bazar area in Adorsho Sadar upazila at around 6pm on Wednesday.
Denying the allegations, Sikandar Ali said: "Why would I kill Parvez? He was beaten to death after being caught snatching."
Speaking on the issue, Comilla Kotwali police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Anwarul Haque said Parvez was an accused in cases including robbery and snatching. Police will take action after investigating the circumstances of his death."
