Liton murder pre-mediated by Sectarian forces
jamuna news: Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said Sunday that sectarian forces are responsible for the murder of MP Manjurul Islam Liton.
He said at the party's Dhanmondi office that the death of Gaibandha Sundarganj MP Manjurul Islam Liton was a pre-meditated murder. Initially, it appears to be the cowardly work of sectarian forces.
The state will ensure that the religious extremists responsible will pay a high price for this crime, he said. The attack was planned to coincide with New Year’s celebrations, coming just as Bangladeshis were beginning to celebrate.
Three men riding on a motorbike came to Liton's house on Saturday evening and killed him.
According to witnesses and police, the MP was shot twice in the chest and once in the arm.
The Awami League has blamed the Jamaat-e-Islami.
Liton is the second incumbent MP killed by gunmen after the 2005 murder of Awami League's Shah AMS Kibria in Habiganj.
