Man beaten to death in Lalmonirhat

A man was beaten to death in Lalmonirhat’s Patgram upazila on Thursday as he refused to pay the extortion money for his stone-laden boat.

The deceased was identified as Majnu Hossain, 28, son of Altab Hossain, a resident of Dabalsuti Majipara area in the upazila.

Witnesses said Sahajuddin regularly collects Tk 50 from each boat who extracts stones from the Dharla River. He hit Manju’s head with a rod as he refused pay the extortion money in the morning, and continued beating him even after others tried to save Manju.

Majnu succumbed to his injuries on the way to hospital.

Patgram Police Station OC Sumon Kumar Mohanta said police have detained two people and a case has been filed with the police station in this regard.
