Emrat Sardar (40), who was injured in a bomb attack during the victory procession of an independent candidate who won the 12th National Assembly election in Kalkini, Madaripur, died. Emirat died under treatment in the ICU of a private hospital in the capital around 2 pm on Thursday.

According to the police and the locals, upazila Awami League president Tahmina Begum, an independent candidate of the eagle symbol, won against Abdus Sobhan Mia Golap, the Awami League nominated boat candidate in Madaripur-3 constituency. On the morning of January 8, a victory procession was taken out under the leadership of Hafizur Rahman Milan Sardar, the former chairman of Alinagar Union, the supporter of Tahmina Begum. On the way from Kaliganj Bazar of the union to Fansiatala Bazar, the workers of current chairman of Alinagar Union and supporter of the boat candidate Shahid Parvez ambushed the procession.

At least 10 people were injured in this attack. The injured were rescued and admitted to Kalkini Upazila Health Complex and District Headquarters Hospital. Among the injured, Emarat Hossain Sardar was sent to Dhaka for advanced treatment from District Headquarters Hospital as his condition was serious.

Dr. Chief Executive Officer of Dhaka Prime Hospital. Golam Mostafa said, ‘We tried our best to save the patient. But we could not save the patient as his condition was very bad.’

Shahnaz Begum, the wife of those killed in this incident, said, “I want justice from the government for killing my husband.”

The deceased’s brother Emdad Sardar said, ‘I tried a lot to save my brother. But the body was so damaged by the bomb that I could not hold it anymore. I want exemplary justice for my brother’s killers.’

In this regard, Tahmina Begum, the newly-elected Member of Parliament of Madaripur-3 Constituency, said, ‘Since the independent candidate of Madaripur-3 Constituency was elected in the last 7th election, boat workers-supporters have been vandalizing the houses of my workers-supporters in different areas. After winning the election, the supporters can hold a victory march. That is why the procession should be bombed? Those who have caused this incident should be brought under the law.
