Father, son killed over land dispute in Mymensingh
An elderly man and his son were killed and three others were injured in a clash between two groups over land dispute in Mymensingh's Sadar upazila this afternoon.
The deceased were identified as Abul Khayer, 60, and his son Farhad Hossain, 20, of the upazila's Churkhai-Jamtala area, our Mymensingh correspondent reports, quoting police.
Quoting locals, Shah Kamal Akanda, officer-in-charge of Kotwali Police Station, said there had been a longstanding dispute between Khayer and his neighbour Kamal Mia over a piece of land in Churkhai- Jaamtola area.
When Khayer went to the disputed land around 3:00pm today, Kamal along with his wife and three sons also rushed to the spot and got locked into an altercation with Khayer.
At one stage, Kamal and his men attacked Khayer and his family with sharp weapons, leaving him, his son Farhad and three others injured.
Locals rescued them to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital (MMCH) where doctors declared Khayer and Farhad dead.
The three critically injured persons are undergoing treatment at the MMCH.
The process to file a case in this regard was under way, and none could be arrested yet, added the OC.
