Rajshahi sexagenarian killed over stealing rice

A sexagenarian man has been hacked to death in Mohanpur upazila of Rajshahi for allegedly stealing rice from a mosque.

The incident took place at around 8:30 pm on Saturday at Khayra Matikata village in Maugachhi union.

The deceased was identified as Kobbas Ali, 60, a resident of the village.

Al-Amin Biswas, Chairman of Maugachhi Union Parishad, said some 20 kilograms of paddy have been stolen from a local mosque a few days ago.

Villagers alleged that  Kobbas Ali's nephew Saddam Hussein, 20, had stole the rice. However, the mosque committee president has settled the matter in an arbitration.

But some musullis did not accept it that led to a tension in the area.

As a sequel, Kobbas Ali had an altercation with some locals around 8 pm on Saturday.

At one stage, both sides locked in a clash that left at least seven people including Kobbas and his two sons injured.

The injured were taken to the Upazila Health Complex where the on-duty doctor declared Kobbas Ali dead.
