A village doctor was hacked to death and a university teacher wounded in western Bangladesh. Police suspect the incident was part of attacks on the religious minority.

The attackers on Friday rode a motorcycle which they used to block another motorbike driven by their victims in the western district of Kushtia, 245km from Dhaka, local police chief Mohammad Sahabuddin Chowdhury said.

The homeopathic doctor, Mir Sanaur Rahman, 55, was killed on the spot and his companion, identified as Saifuzzaman, 45, suffered serious wounds. Police found a bloody machete at the scene.
