‘Murderers will have to pay heavily for this’
Staff Correspondent:Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today blamed religious radicals for the murder of Gaibandha lawmaker andmemberof parliament Manzurul Islam Liton.
“The murder was preplanned. They will have to pay heavily for this,” he said at a press briefing after an urgent meeting of Awami League leaders this afternoon.
“In the primary stages it appears to be a killing in cold-blood to instigate communalism,” Obaidul Quader said while offering condolences to the bereaved family of the lawmaker.
Manzurul Islam Liton, ruling Awami League lawmaker of Gaibandha-1 constituency, was shot dead in his home at Sundarganj upazila of the district yesterday evening.
Four men stormed the MP's home in Bamondanga area around 6:00pm and shot him when he was in his guest room. Thus far, no one has been arrested for the killing.
