The attack on bloggers critical of Islam have taken on a disturbing regularity in Bangladesh with yet another writer hacked to death today.
Ananta Bijoy Das was killed as he left his home on his way to work at a bank, police in the northeastern Bangladeshi city of Sylhet said.
Four masked men attacked him, hacking him to death with cleavers, said Sylhet Metropolitan Police Commissioner Kamrul Ahsan.
The men then ran away. Because of the time of the morning when the attack happened, there were few witnesses. But police said they are following up on interviewing the few people who saw the incident.
Das was in his 30s, Ahsan said. He couldn’t provide an exact age.
