11 Nov,2018


Two teenage supporters of an Awami League nomination seeker were run over and killed by a pickup fleeing an attack allegedly by a rival group in the capital's Mohammadpur yesterday.

They were identified as Mohammad Sujon, 17, assistant of a mason, and Arif Hossain, 14, a printing press worker.

Armed with hammers, sharp weapons and brickbats, the attackers swooped on the supporters of Sadek Khan also in Shampa Market, Sunibir Housing and Adabar 10 and 12 areas, leaving at least 25 injured.

The incident happened as the AL leader was about to go to a party office in his motorcade to buy nomination paper, said witnesses and his supporters.

 Sadek's men blamed the supporters of an aide of Jahangir Kabir Nanak -- another AL MP aspirant in the same constituency (Dhaka-13) -- for the attacks.
