Man shot in Munshiganj town clash

A man was shot during a clash between two groups in Munshiganj town on Monday night. Md Babul Sheikh, 35, received bullet injuries while five others were also hurt in the clash that erupted around 09:45pm near President Iajuddin School and College.

Babul is the son of Motaleb Sheikh, a resident of Hatlaxmiganj.

Officer-in-charge of Munshiganj Sadar Police Station Iardous Hasan told the two groups got into a clash over keeping sand-laden bulkhead on the Dhaleswari river.

“The clash erupted between the Jahid group in Naogaon and the Makbul group in Hatlaxmiganj,” he said.

Bullet-hit Babul was admitted to Munshiganj General Hospital but was later shifted to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital when his condition deteriorated while the other injured were given first aid.

A case would be filed in this connection, said police.
