Chattogram Coastal Forest Division Assistant Range Officer Mohammad Yusuf, who was attacked by some land grabbers a week ago, succumbed to his injuries on Thursday morning.

He breathed his last at Chattogram Medical College Hospital at 6:00am. 

On July 30, Yusuf led a drive at Koroibunia under Maheskhali upazila in Cox’s Bazar to rescue the land of the forest division from encroachment by some grabbers.

At that time, the grabbers attacked Yusuf, leaving him seriously wounded.

He was rushed to Chhatogram Medical College Hospital and kept its ICU unit. After struggling for a week, he lost in the battle for survival.

Yusuf hailed from Kutubdia in Cox’s Bazar.
