The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for killing a Hindu priest at Panchagarh, an intelligence group has said.
The US-based SITE Intelligence Group published the report after the execution-style killing of Jajneswar Roy at Sonapota village on Sunday morning.
The attackers, who arrived on a motorcycle, also shot and injured Gopal Chandra, a devotee who witnessed the murder.
They slit the throat of the 50-year-old, who headed the Santo Gaurio temple, after hacking him with sharp weapons.
The SITE Intelligence Group had earlier reported that IS claimed responsibility for the murder of Japanese national Kunio Hoshi at Rangpur, the attack on a Shia mosque in Bogra and another on a Shia rally in Dhaka.
