A local activist of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) was stabbed to death allegedly by rivals at Tilagor in Sylhet on Sunday night.

The deceased was identified as Tanim Khan, an activist of Sylhet Govt College unit BCL and son of Israil Khan of Nij Bhurungamari village in Osmaninagar upazila.

Akhtar Hossain, Officer-in-Charge of Shah Paran Police Station, said two BCL groups had long been at loggerheads over establishing supremacy at MC College.

As a sequel of the enmity, rivals swooped on Tanim at Tilagor Point around 9pm and stabbed him indiscriminately, leaving him critically wounded.

Locals rescued him and took him to Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College Hospital where doctors declared him dead, according to a UNB report.
