A local leader of Awami Swechchhasebak League, a front organisation of ruling Awami League, was hacked to death in Mehendiganj of Barisal on Friday morning.
The victim Idris Majhi, 31, was a joint secretary of Char Ekkoria union unit of Swechchhasebak League, said Ramkrishna Devnath, convener of the upazila SL unit.
