AL factional clash leaves 3 dead in Narsingdi

Three people were killed and 100 others injured in a clash between two factions of Awami League over establishing supremacy in Nilakkha union of Raipura upazila yesterday. Two of the deceased were identified as Sohagh Miah and Maram Ali, local residents.

Zakir Hasan, additional superintendent of police, said former union parishad chairman and former Raipura upazila AL vice-president Abdul Haque and present union parishad chairman and union AL president Tajul Islam had long been at loggerheads over controlling the locality. As a sequel of the previous enmity, the supporters of both the AL leaders locked into a clash around 3pm. Equipped with firearms and fishing spears (teta), they attacked each, leaving three people dead on the spot and 100 others injured.

On information, police rushed in and tried to bring the situation under control.

However, sporadic clashes continued till filing of this report around 8pm. The injured were taken to different hospitals, said Mohsin Alam, officer-in-charge of Raipur Police Station.

He also said additional policemen were called in to bring the situation under control.

Earlier, a Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinee was shot dead during a clash between two AL groups at Bashgari of the upazila in the early hours.

The deceased was identified as Tofazzal Hossain Rana, son of local Abdullah Fakir.

The OC said supporters of former Bashgari union parishad chairman and ex-union AL president Shahed Sarkar and current chairman Sirajul Haque, also an AL leader, attacked each other and exchanged gunfire from around 9 pm till midnight on Thursday.

After a short interval, they again exchanged gunfire early Friday.

Tofazzel, who came out of his home to respond to the natural call, sustained bullet injuries to the head around 6 am during the gunfight. Later, he died on the way to Narsingdi hospital.
