Hindu tailor hacked to death in Bangladesh: police


At least two assailants hacked a Hindu tailor to death in central Bangladesh Saturday, police said, amid a rise in attacks on religious minorities by extremist groups in the Muslim-majority nation.

“They came on a motorcycle and attacked him as he sat on a roadside. They hacked him on his head, neck and hand,” deputy chief of Tangail district police Aslam Khan told AFP.

He added that the victim, named as Nikhil Chandra Joarder, may have been murdered for allegedly making derogatory remarks about the Prophet Mohammed several years ago.
