Daesh claims responsibility for killing of Bangladeshi policeman

5 November 2015 14:41


The Takfiri Daesh terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the murder of a policeman in Bangladesh.

The terrorist group made the claim in a statement released late on Wednesday, shortly after a number of unknown men stabbed a police officer to death outside the capital, Dhaka.

The deadly incident came less than a month after another policeman was badly wounded in a similar attack.

Bangladeshi Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan held local militants responsible for the Wednesday stabbing. However, the US-based militant monitor group, SITE, cited Daesh elements as saying that they were behind the killing.

Bangladesh has seen a rise in violence, particularly against bloggers in the country.

On October 321, a gang of men carrying machetes and cleavers hacked to death Faisal Arefin Dipan, a publisher of secular books, at his office in Dhaka. Two bloggers along with publisher Ahmedur Rashid Tutul were also wounded in a separate assault in the capital.

The militant group, al-Qaeda in the Indian Sub-Continent, or AQIS, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
