Man killed over land dispute in Moulvibazar

Moulvibazar Correspondent : A man was killed in a clash with his rivals over a piece of land in the district’s Juri Upazila on Tuesday.

Police said the victim, 53-year-old Taher Ali of Kalinagar village, had a longstanding land dispute with his neighbour Chan Mia.

Two groups, led by Taher and Chan, tried to sow paddy in the disputed land in the afternoon, triggering a clash, said Jahangir Hossain, officer-in-charge of Juri Police Station.

They fought with sharp weapons and sticks, leaving at least six to seven people injured, including Taher. He was taken to a local hospital but doctors pronounced him dead.

Three people had been detained for interrogation over the man’s death, the OC said.
