MAGURA: An elderly man was hacked to death allegedly by miscreants at Mohammadpur upazila in Magura district on Monday night.
The incident occurred at Mridhapara in Balidia village around 11pm.
Locals said some miscreants indiscriminately struck Mosharaf with sharp weapons on the way when he was returning home on foot, leaving him dead on the spot.
Local UP chairman Mofizur Rahman said there had been a dispute over establishing supremacy in the village. Mosharaf might have been killed as the sequel to that.
Meanwhile, additional police have been deployed in the area to avert further untoward situations, said Mohammadpur Police Station officer-in-charge (OC) Asit Kumar.
Legal action would be taken after receiving a written complaint, the OC added.
