A BNP leader was shot dead in Noakhali Sadar Upazila on Friday.

The deceased was identified as Harunur Rashid Molla, general secretary of the party’s Andar Char Union unit.

Two others were also wounded during this time.

The incident took place in the Taltola area of Andar Char Union around 8am Friday.

Aminul Haque, brother of the deceased, said a few days ago Harun's son Sazib locked horns with some local goons. They were allegedly ruling party activists.

As fallout of this event, 15-20 armed youths patrolled the entire area on Friday looking for Sazib.

At one stage, they found Harun, who was also wandering around in search of his son to shield him from any trouble.

Harun was first shot and wounded further with sharp weapons.

His nephew Ramiz Uddin, 25, and another one of his associates were also wounded badly during the attack.

The locals rushed the injured to the 250-bed Noakhali General Hospital where the on duty doctor declared Harun dead.

Sadar Circle Superintendent of Police Akramul Haque told UNB that two people involved in the murder were arrested.

The operation to arrest others will continue, he said. "However, the identities and motives of the murderers will be confirmed after further investigation.”
