On the way back after the election campaign, the independent candidate of Naogaon-5 (Sadar) Dewan Chekar Ahmed Shishan (Truck) and A Ehsan Renja, the leader of Naogaon Municipal Awami League, were seriously injured by a sharp weapon.
The incident took place in front of Alhera Rice Mill in Rambhadrapur area of Naogaon city bypass road yesterday at around 8 pm.
After that, the locals rescued the injured Renja from the spot and admitted him to Naogaon Sadar General Hospital at night.
Independent candidate Dewan Chekar Ahmed Shishan said that masked terrorists attacked him on his way back home on a motorcycle at night after the Renja election campaign.
Chhekar Ahmed said, ‘Renja is the leader of Naogaon Municipal Awami League and an active worker of my truck symbol. He was being threatened in various ways by the people of the rival boat candidate for working for my truck symbol in the election.
