Dhaka, June 10 (IANS) An inmate of a Hindu ashram was hacked to death in Bangladesh’s Pabna town on Friday morning, police said.

Nityaranjan Pandey, 60, a volunteer at a Hindu ashram, was murdered during his morning walk, a senior police officer said.

His killing comes several days after a Christian grocer was killed in Natore and a Hindu priest in Jhenaidah, reported.

Pandey was working as a volunteer at the ashram for the past 40 years.

The police said the assailants attacked him on neck and head from behind.

The officer said: “We’ll look into all possible aspects. We can’t say right now if it was a militant attack.”

A number of murders carried out in similar fashion across the country in the past two years have sparked public outrage.
