Blogger Ananta Bijoy killed in Sylhet

38A blogger and an organiser of local Gonojagoron Mancha named Ananta Bijoy Das has been hacked to death by some unidentified miscreants in Sylhet around 8:30am on Tuesday.

Rahmatullah, additional deputy commissioner of Sylhet Metropolitan Police, said some miscreants hacked Ananta near his residence in Subid Bazar area of Sylhet, leaving him dead on the spot.

The murder comes in persistence of the recent killings of free thinkers Avijit Roy and Oyashiqur Rahman earlier this year – which have been blamed on fanatics.

Ananta was an organiser of local organisation Jukti (logic) and a relentless writer on science.

He was also a writer in the Muktomona blog site, founded by slain writer Avijit Roy – who was murdered two and half months ago after he came home from abroad.
