Miscreants hacked to death an agent of an independent candidate who lost in the 12th parliamentary elections in Noakhali-2 (Senbagh and Sonaimuri partial) constituencies. The incident took place at Purba Mirzanagar village of Nateshwar Union of Sonaimuri Upazila on Saturday around 10 pm.

The police recovered the body around 11:30 pm after receiving the information. However, the police could not confirm who and why organized this murder.

The name of the deceased is Shaheduzzaman Palash (35). Son of Jamal Uddin of East Mirzanagar village. Shaheduzzaman was the polling agent of the Kanchi symbol in the center of Purba Mirzanagar Government Primary School of Sonaimuri in the National Assembly elections held on January 7.

Talking to the police and local people, it is known that the neighbors saw Shaheduzzaman’s body lying in a bloody state in an empty space near his house in Purba Mirzanagar village at around 10 o’clock yesterday night. Sharp weapon injuries were seen on his forehead and face. The local people immediately informed the matter to Sonaimuri police station. Later, the police reached the spot and recovered the body after making a report.

Awami League’s independent candidate Ataur Rahman Bhuiya Manik said that Shaheduzzaman was a polling agent of Kanchi Prateik and said, “Activists and supporters of the boat candidate have been threatening Shaheduzzaman since the election day on January 7 for protesting the spread of fake votes and illegal influence in the polling station. He may be killed because of this.’

He demanded a fair investigation of the incident and bringing the culprits under the law.

However, the independent candidate’s complaint is baseless, the winning member of parliament Morshed Alam claimed. He claimed that during the last 10 years as a member of Parliament, no political violence or killings occurred in the area. The candidate who lost the election started a smear campaign to make him socially inferior.

Morshed Alam also said that after learning about the murder, he immediately instructed the OC of Sonaimuri police station to conduct a proper investigation and bring the guilty under the law.

Mohammad Bakhtiar Uddin Chowdhury, officer-in-charge of Sonaimuri police station, said that Shaheduzzaman used to live abroad. After coming to the country, he farmed fish and chicken in the area. He lived in his in-laws’ house with his wife. During the day he used to come to his house and take care of the farm. Shaheduzzaman was last spoken to by his wife’s video call around 8:30 pm yesterday.

The OC also said that the investigation has already started on who or who is involved in this murder. Further legal action will be taken based on the complaint of the family in this incident.

It is to be noted that Morshed Alam won the Noakhali-2 seat in the election on January 7 by getting 56 thousand 186 votes in the boat symbol. Independent (Kanchi) candidate Ataur Rahman Bhuiyan got 52 thousand 863 votes.
