Blogger Niloy slaughtered in Dhaka
7 August 2015, Nirapad News: A Blogger and activist of Gonojagoron Moncho, has been stabbed to death by assailants in his residence at East Goran in Dhaka.
Assistant Commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police Md Nure Alam told that police recovered the body of Niloy Chatterjee on Friday afternoon.
“We heard that the victim was a blogger but the identity is not confirmed yet,” said the police officer.
Niloy Chatterjee, 40, was known as Niloy Neel on Facebook. On his Facebook account, Niloy wrote several notes on women rights and superstitions.
He was also a member of Bangladesh Bigyan O Juktibadi Sangathan (Science and Rationalists’ Association).
The incident took place two months after Mukto-Mona blogger Ananta Bijoy Das was murdered by masked assailants in Sylhet.
Another blogger, Oyasiqur Rahman Babu, was hacked to death only a month after secular blogger and former Buet teacher Avijit Roy was killed by extremists during Ekushey Book Fair in February.
