“Nazmul was the vice president on my committee,” said former district Chhatra League General Secretary Md Ashraf Ali. “I call for the immediate arrest of his killers and for them to be brought to trial.”
The victim had several wounds on different parts of his body, OC Shamsul said.
The body has been taken to the morgue and a case is being prepared over the incident, he said. Police are conducting an operation to arrest the perpetrators.
