In yet another chilling incident of murder, a woman journalist of a television channel in Bangladesh was hacked to death by a sharp-edged weapon by some unidentified assailants at her home.
32-year-old Subarna Nodi worked as a correspondent of private news channel Ananda TV and also worked as an editor for the Daily Jagroto Bangla newspaper.
“Some unidentified men rang the doorbell. They fled after hacking her indiscriminately when she opened the door,” Pabna Additional Superintendent of Police Ibne Mizan was quoted as saying.
According to BDnews24x7, Nodi was attacked by her assailants, around 10-12 in number, when she answered the doorbell at Radhanagar Majumdarparha town, around 150 kms from the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, at around 10:45pm on Tuesday.
The journalist is survived by a nine-year-old daughter and was awaiting divorce from her husband. Her Facebook page is replete with her family photos particularly with her daughter.
The assailants, according to a report by PTI, used a sharp-edged weapon to attack her. Some locals rushed her to hospital where she was declared brought dead.
Police have launched several teams to nab the culprits, Additional SP Gautam Kumar Biswas said. Journalists in Pabna have condemned the killing and demanded that the murderers be immediately brought to justice.
