2 killed while making bombs in Satkhira

Two people were killed and at least four others injured in a blast while making bombs at a house in Kaliganj upazila yesterday.

Of the dead, Amirul Islam, 35, hailed from Bahera village of Debhata upazila while identity of the other one could not be known. The injured are Hasan, Zia and two others from Bahera village, said police.

The explosion occurred in the afternoon while some local gangsters were making bombs to launch a fresh attack on the people they had already evicted from Bairagirchak. Earlier on April 22, the gang led by Ashraf Mir occupied 150-acre khas land, forcing 250 landless families to leave the area, police quoted the locals as saying.

A police team led by Sub-Inspector Akkas Ali of Kaliganj Police Station visited the scene soon after the blast.
