A man was killed in a clash between two groups of villagers over a piece of disputed land at Shankerbati village in Godagari upazila of the district yesterday.

The deceased was identified as Jahangir Hossain, 35, son of Asuuddin, a resident of the village.

SM Abu Farhad, Officer-in-Charge of Godagari Police Station, said Jahangir and his neighbour Mithun had a long-lasting conflict over the ownership of a piece of land in the village.

As a sequel to the enmity, followers of Jahangir went to Mithun's house and beat him and his wife Monwara.

In retaliation, men of Mithun chased Jahangir's men. At one stage, they caught Jahangir while his other associates managed to flee from the scene. Mithun's supporters beat Jahangir mercilessly, leaving him seriously injured.

Later, he was rushed to the nearby Premtali Hospital where doctors declared him dead.

On information, police recovered the body and sent it to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital morgue for autopsy.

Meanwhile, police arrested one Azizul Islam for his alleged involvement with the killing.
