Sajib Hossain was stabbed to death on July 18 by his rivals over previous enmity related to financial transactions and marriage. It was an isolated incident and no political motive was found in connection with this murder.
Witnesses said Sajib came to the city on personal work and was stabbed by the miscreants.
Preliminary investigation revealed that Sajib was a pedestrian who was not in a political spot and was not a political activist. Four to five people attacked Sajib with sharp weapon and stabbed him indiscriminately. Sajib was pronounced dead upon arrival at Lakshmipur Sadar Hospital.
The CCTV footage shows after being attacked, Sajib took shelter at Feroza Tower near Madinulllah Housing of Laxmipur and found lying on the first floor of the building.
He died there due to profuse bleeding. Before dying, the deceased Sajib informed the flat owner Noman that four to five people stabbed him. They lent him some money. He was attacked due to monetary transaction and dispute over his marriage.
He also told that he was not involved in any political activities.
Earlier a call to 999 came in before his death. The police went there and recovered the body and sent it to Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsy.
Meanwhile, BNP claimed the deceased an activist of Jubo Dal. Later they claimed him to be a leader of Krishak Dal in Lakshmipur.
It has been alleged that BNP is trying to gain political advantage by claiming the slain Sajib as their party worker.
Previously BNP activists spread rumors with a different photo of a deceased person on social media that BNP worker was killed in Lakshmipur. Later it was not found to be true.
The political analysts and conscious citizens expressed concerns over the violence BNP activists in recent political programmes. Analysts say that BNP has started the politics of corpses regarding the next national elections. They say
if violent activity lingers, will have a disastrous impact on the country’s economy. The concerned authorities as well as the general public should be aware and alert in this regard.
