A Hindu tailor was hacked to death in central Bangladesh.

Police are investigating if the killing was linked to religious groups that kill individuals from the minority.

At least two unidentified assailants were seen at the scene.

"They came on a motorcycle and attacked him as he sat on a roadside. They hacked him on his head, neck and hand," Aslam Khan, deputy chief of Tangail district police, has told foreign media.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group has claimed credit for the attack in a post online but the claim could not be independently verified.
