A Correspondent Naogaon: A freedom fighter was hacked to death and another person injured in an attack by a group of miscreants at Ayapur village in Patnitala upazila on Tuesday midnight. The deceased was identified as Nazim Uddin, 65, son of late Mofizuddin, a resident of Merulia village in the same upazila. Police said a gang of unknown miscreants attacked Nazim and his associate Belal Hossain in the area and chopped them indiscriminately with sharp weapons while they were returning home at about 12.00 am, leaving Nazim dead on the spot and Belal seriously injured. Hearing their screams, local people rescued Belal and took him to Patnitala upazila health complex where doctors referred him to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital. Informed, police recovered the body and sent it to hospital morgue for an autopsy. Abdur Rafiq, officer-in-charge of Patnitala Police Station, said Nazim might have been killed over previous enmity. Police arrested eight people, including a woman, suspecting their involvement in the incident, the OC added. A case was filed in this connection.
