A 50-year-old named Bhuban Chandra Sheel died after he sustained bullet wounds on 18 September during an attack on top criminal Tariq Saeed Mamun in Bangladesh Government Press area in the capital's Tejgaon.
Bhuban died at 10:35am on Monday (25 September) in the ICU of Dhanmondi Popular Hospital.
Dhanmondi police station's officer in charge Parvej Islam said the body will be taken to Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital before being taken to his hometown Feni.
On the night of 18 September night, a group of miscreants fired indiscriminately at a car of top criminal Tariq Saeed Mamun in Bangladesh Government Press area in the capital's Tejgaon.
At that time, Bhuban was shot in the head while returning to his home on a motorcycle. Later he was admitted to Dhanmondi Popular in the capital.
Briefing reporters on Tuesday (19 September), Additional Commissioner of Police (DB) Harun Or Rashid said top criminal Mamun – whose car came under attack – is a convict in a case filed over the murder of actor Sohel Chowdhury. He was recently released on bail after serving 20 years in jail.
"While in prison, another top criminal named Sanzidul Islam Emon had a dispute with Mamun. No one was arrested and a case was under process to be filed. They both appeared before the court on 12 September where Emon threatened Mamun. We believe Emon's men organised the attack," he added.
Two other people were injured during the attack, and have been identified as - Bhuban Chandra Sheel and Ariful Haque, two "pedestrians".
