Juba League man accused in AL man murder killed in gunfight

first_imgJuba League man accused in AL man murder killed in ‘gunfight’An activist of Awami Juba League was killed in what the Rapid Action Battalion aka RAB calls a gunfight with its members in Jhikargachha upazila of Jessore in the early hours of Saturday.Awami Juba League is the youth wing of ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL). Police said the victim, Liton Hossain Babu also known as Pulsar Babu, 35, was a “top terror” in the area and was accused in several cases including murder ones.The law enforcement said Liton – son of Hasan Ali Khokan of the upazila’s Mirzapur village – was the prime accused in the case over the murder of a local AL activist, Abbas Hossain, who was killed three days ago on Wednesday, 3 January.RAB-6 (Jessore) camp commander major Md. Ziaur Rahman claimed a RAB team conducted a raid in upazila’s Refugeepara, acting on a tip-off that a group of miscreants were trading arms there around 6:00 this morning.According to the claim of the RAB officer, three to four terrorists fled the scene shortly after sensing the presence of the law enforcers, but one of them opened fire on the law enforcers.“And in self defence, RAB too opened fire on him, leading to the death of the terrorist,” he added.The RAB officer further claimed that two RAB members were also injured in the shootout.But the RAB’s version of the event was not verified independently as no account of the incident was available immediately either from any witnesses or any member of the victim’s family.Jhikargachha police station officer-in-charge Abu Saleh Md Masud Karim told Prothom Alo that they recovered the bullet-hit body of Liton from Kashipur village of the upazila this morning after they received a message in this regard from RAB.The police officer said “Pulsar Babu” was a “top terror” in the area and was accused in several cases including the Abbas Hossain murder case.An AL activist, Abbas Hossain, 43, is the son of Harez Ali Molla of Chandrapur village of the upazila.Abbas Hossain’s brother Abdus Salam is a member of Jhikargachha sadar union council and another brother Kamal Hossain is the general secretary of Jhikargachha upazila unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), the student wing of the ruling AL.According to witness Shamim Hossain, nephew of Abbas Hossain, he along with his uncle Abbas, Abdus Salam and Kamal Hossain were overseeing the work of their under-construction building on Wednesday morning. “Around 11:45am Wednesday, a group of 10 to 12 arms-wielding terrorists led by Pulsar Babu and certain Alamgir Hossain surrounded them,” he added.According to Shamim, at one stage, Abdus Salam and Kamal Hossain managed to flee the scene.“Pulsar Babu hurled bomb on Abbas Hossain and he immediately falls on the ground and then Alamgir stabbed him in his belly.”Shamim said the assailants flee the scene by charging five more bombs there. Abbas succumbed to his injuries on his way to hospital.Talking to Prothom Alo on Wednesday, Jhikargachha upazila AL joint general secretary Monirul Islam said, “Abbas was an AL activist and rival AL men have killed him. They launched bomb attack on my house to kill me too.”On the other hand, the upazila AL general secretary Musa Mahmud told Prothom Alo on Wednesday, “There is no grouping in the upazila AL unit. I don’t know whether slain Abbas was involved in AL politics, but Babu [Liton Babu] is my follower. He is involved in Juba League. If he [Liton Babu] is responsible for the killing, he must be tried.”After the killing of Abbas on Wednesday, Jhikargaccha police station OC Masud Karim told Prothom Alo, “There are two rival groups in the upazila AL. As a sequel to the political rivalry, Abbas was killed in the bomb attack of his rival group in his own house.”last_img read more
