Madrasah teacher held for quizzing over Nikhil murder

Police detained a madrasah teacher for quizzing in connection with the killing of Hindu tailor Nikhil Joarder. The detainee was identified as Mawlana Amirul Islam, 42, super of Alamnagar Dakhil Madrasah.
Amirul was held from his home at Dattabari village in Modhupur upazila of the district ‘just for quizzing’, superintendent of police Faleh M Tanvir told UNB over phone.
Amirul Islam, also the Gopalpur correspondent of vernacular daily Inqilab, filed a case against Nikhil on May 2012 with Gopalpur Police Station for his derogatory remarks about Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), the SP added.
Later, Amirul withdrew the case on March, 2015.
Earlier on Saturday morning, the Hindu tailor was chopped to death by assailants at Dubail Bazar in Gopalpur upazila on Saturday.
Assistant police super (Gopalpur circle) Jamir Uddin said three youths riding a motorcycle appeared before the tailoring shop of Nikhil Chandra Joarder, 45, at Dubail Bazar near his house around 11:30 am while he was working there and called him out of the shop.
Later, they chopped Nikhil with sharp weapons indiscriminately, leaving him dead on the spot, he said.
The assailants had managed to flee the scene before the locals reached the spot.
On information, police rushed in and recovered some crude bombs from the spot.
Nikhil had served three months jail two years back for his derogatory comments about Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), said Jamir Uddin.
Local people said Nikhil might have been killed over the issue.
Police said Nikhil’s nephew (brother’s daughter) Swarna divorced her husband some days ago and Nikhil had a role in the divorce.
The family members of Swarna’s husband had been giving death threat to Nikhil, police further said.
