A law student called Nazimuddin Samad who is a law student and blogger in the university had been killed. He was known for his atheism comments on social media.

According to Bangladeshi police, they said that in recent times, there have been series of killings of secular activists and bloggers in the country.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Nurul Amin said at least three men riding on a single motorbike carried out the killing on Wednesday night. Although, no terrorist group has claimed responsibility for this action, as the killers are unknown.

According to Al Jazeera, the 28-year-old Nazimuddin Samad was the seventh secular activist who has been killed.

“The men on the motorbike first hit him with machetes. Then they shot him to make sure he was dead,” was the report we gathered.

Police suspected that Samad had been targeted for his outspoken atheism in the Muslim-majority country, and for supporting a 2013 movement to demand capital punishment for war crimes involving the country’s independence war against Pakistan in 1971.

The national Dhaka Tribune newspaper reported that the assailants shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest) as they attacked Samad on a busy road near Dhaka’s Jagannath University, where he was a law student.
