En sekulær blogger ble hakket i hjel i sitt hjem i Dhaka av seks menn med macheter. Det er det fjerde bestialske drapet på en sekulær blogger hittil siden februar, skriver the Independent.
Politiet er ikke ut til å være i stand til å stanse drapene.
Niloy Chakrabarti, who blogged under the alias Niloy Neel, was killed when the gang broke into his apartment, according to the Bangladesh Blogger and Activist Network.
Imran H Sarker, head of the network, told news agency AFP: “They entered his room in the fifth floor and shoved his friend aside and then hacked him to death. He was a listed target of the Islamist militants.”
Police have confirmed that Chakrabarti was murdered by a group of six people in the capital’s Goran neighbourhood.
They currently have no details about background of the group or the motive behind the killing.
Police said that six people knocked on Chakrabarti’s door saying that they were looking to rent a flat, AFP reported.
Two of the gang then took Chakrabarti into a room and slaughtered him.
According to reports, his wife was also present in the flat but she was confined in another room.
Politiet forbød en islamistisk gruppe i mai, og det var den sjette i rekken. Men likevel fortsetter drapene. Det tyder en ikke spesielt effektiv politiinnsats.
A militant group known as the Ansarullah Bangla Team was banned by Bangladeshi authorities in May after being linked to the three murders by police.
