Golam Rasul, officer-in-charge of Kaliganj Police Station, said some men tailed Ayub’s bike and blocked his way on a desolate road adjacent to Dhananjoy Kechu Bari at 1am.

“They tried to snatch a bag containing money from his possession. When Ayub resisted, the miscreants stabbed him indiscriminately, leaving him dead on the spot,” the OC said.
