On Aug 28, a group of assailants entered a house at Moghbazar's Sonalibagh area and shot dead three people, owner ‘Brishty’ alias ‘Ranu’, 30, tenants ‘Munna’, 22, and ‘Belal’, 20.

Ranu’s 18-year old brother, ‘Hridoy’, was left wounded.

The family blamed local "crime boss" Kala Babu, saying he had been demanding extortion money for some time.

Police, however, believe the murders were a sequel to a dispute over the possession of a plot of land misappropriated from the Bangladesh Railway.

Brishty was the sister of Awami League's Maghbazar Railway unit General Secretary Kala Chan.

Locals say Kala Chan controlled the railway land and Brishty had built tin-roof rooms there and rented them out.
