DHAKA: Bangladesh police on Sunday arrested three men, including a member of the fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami and a journalist, for the brutal murder of a Hindu tailor by machete-wielding ISIS militants in the latest attack on secular writers and minorities in the Muslim-majority nation.

Two cases have also been filed over the killing of 50-year-old Nikhil Chandra Joarder, who was hacked to death by three assailants who forcibly entered his house and slit his throat yesterday in central Bangladesh’s Tangail district.

One of the cases was filed over the murder of Joarder and another over bombs seized from a bag left by the assailants.

Police arrested Badsa Miah, Jamaat secretary of Gopalpur municipal unit, local BNP activist Jhantu Mia and a local journalist and Gopalpur Press Club’s vice-president Aminul Islam for the murder.
