PV Desk : Unidentified men have killed an Awami League leader in a drive-by shooting as he was heading home after prayers in a mosque in Dhaka’s Badda, an area known for gangland violence and turf wars.
The incident occurred in front of Baitus Salam Jame Mosque, Badda Police Inspector Abul Kalam Azad said.
“Farhad was shot dead on the spot when he was leaving the mosque after Jumma prayers,” said Azad.
The police did not immediately confirm the motive for the killing.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Ashraful Islam said two men opened fire on Farhad from their motorbike and sped away.
The latest killing mirrors the murder of another Awami League activist in April over an internal conflict in the same area.
