A man was hacked to death by his neighbours due to a dispute over constructing a bridge at Pekua upazila in Cox's Bazar district on Tuesday afternoon.

The killing took place at Jarulbonia Segunbagicha area under Shilkhali union of the upazila.
The deceased was identified as Abdul Qader, 40, son of Abdur Rashid, a resident of the aforesaid area.

Abdur Rashid, the deceased father, said that an argument erupted between Abdul Qader and some of locals when he tried to build a bamboo-made bridge above a canal. At one stage of the argument, they attacked Qader with a sharp weapon. When the family members rushed there to protect the victim, the attackers hacked them also, leaving four members of the family critically injured.

The injured were taken to Pekua Upazila Health Complex where the on-duty doctor declared Qader dead, he said.

Pekua Police Station sub-inspector Abdul Jalil said on information, police recovered the body and sent to Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsy.

However, police have detained two persons for questioning and legal actions will be taken in this regard, added the police official.
