Dhaka, Jan 11 (Just News): An Awami League (AL) activist was gunned down by unidentified criminals in Mirpur upazila of Kushtia today.

The deceased Lutfar Rahman Sabu, 45, was an activist of Awami League Ambaria union unit.

A group of 4 to 5 armed men stopped Sabu in front of a local graveyard in Ambaria village when he was crossing around 1:30pm, said Kazi Jalal Uddin, officer-in-charge (OC) of Mirpur Police Station.

The criminals shot Sabu at point blank range killing him on the spot, the OC said.

“Sabu recently joined AL from BNP,” Atahar Hossain, chairman of Ambaria Union Parishad also organising secretary of Mirpur upazila unit AL said.

“Local JSD cadres threatened Sabu for dire consequences soon after he joined AL,” Atahar said.

Ahmed Ali, president of Mirpur upazila JSD, however, denied the involvement of his party men with the killing.

Different sources said AL and JSD are on confronting for establishing supremacy across Mirpur and Bheramara upazilas.
