An activist of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) has been killed in a 'turf war' at Jirengachha village under Sharsha upazila of Jessore.
The deceased is Biplob Hossain, son of Nazrul Islam of the village. He was a second year student at Navaron Degree College.
Local sources and police said there was a longstanding dispute between supporters of Benapole Municipality Mayor Ashraful Alam Liton and Sharsha upazila MP Sheikh Afil Uddin.

Locals rushed him to Upazila Health Complex where he died while undergoing treatment.
Confirming the matter, Sharsha police OC Moniruzzaman said: “Biplob’s body was sent to Jessore General Hospital for autopsy.”
“We are going to arrest those involved in the murder,” the OC added.
