Hindu businessman and Ex UP member killed by Awami terrorists in Narsingdi.
Former UP member Sujit Sutradhar (53) was hacked to death by his opponents at Hajipur in Narsingdi due to previous hostilities. Several people, including the victim’s son, were injured. The incident took place at 8:30 pm on Wednesday (June 22, 2022) at Hajipur’s Kathbazar. The deceased was identified as Sujit Sutradhar, a former UP member of Ward no 3 of Hajipur Union and former vice-president of Union BNP.
The victim’s family alleged that, his men had carried out the killings with the help of local Union Parishad chairman Yusuf Khan Pintu following a previous case. The accused Pintu is the president of Hajipur Union Awami League and chairman of the union Parishad. In 2006, Saiful Islam Sarkar, the then BNP chairman of Hajipur Union, and his brother Ripon Sarkar were publicly shot and hacked to death. A case is pending in the court against Pintu in the double murder case.
Sujan Sutradhar, son of the deceased, said that his father came to the business establishment from home in the evening. At that time he was discussing business matters with him. At around 8:30 pm, 25/30 men led by Pintu chairman’s brother Monir, chairman’s second-in-command Delu, Rakib and his son attacked his father with knives, daggers and sharp weapons. They used to attack his father randomly. Later rescued Sujit Sutradhar and took him to Sadar Hospital where the doctor declared him dead.
He said he and his staff were beaten and injured when the attack on his father took place.
Sujan Sutradhar further said that while his fahter was a Union Parishad member, there were disputes with Chairman Pintu on various issues including irregularities in the distribution of rice and wheat. Due to this, his father filed several cases in the name of the Pintu chairman. For this reason, Pintu has attacked his father more than once. His father was threatened with death if the case was not dropped.
BNP joint secretary general Khairul Kabir Khokon said Sujit member was a former vice-president of the district BNP. The present Awami terrorists have brutally killed him. We want a fair trial. Otherwise the leaders and workers will join the movement.
When the present chairman of Hajipur Union Yusuf Khan Pintu called on his mobile phone more than once to find out about this, his mobile phone was found switched off.
Narsingdi Additional Superintendent of Police (Crime) Saheb Ali Pathan said the motive for the killing was not yet clear. However, there were lawsuits between the two sides. The operation has started to arrest the accused and the mystery of the murder.
