Khulna Editor Succumbs to the Terrorists' Bomb - 2004-06-27


Dainik Janmabhumi Editor Humayun Kabir Balu was killed and his elder son injured in a bomb attack on Sunday apparently by a leftist extremist posing as a peanut vendor in southwestern Khulna City, police and witnesses said. Balu, 58, also president of Khulna Press Club, suffered critical injuries to his back and legs at 12:15pm in front of his house-cum-office on Islampur Road soon after getting down from his car and died at Khulna Medical College Hospital (KMCH) at 1:50pm, sparking protests.

The Janajuddha faction of outlawed Purbo Banglar Communist Party claimed responsibility for the killing by cellphone to a photojournalist at Khulna Press Club, but police could not confirm the claim.
