A Hindu monastery worker has been hacked to death in Bangladesh, police said, the latest in a string of attacks on secular and minority targets.
Nityaranjan Pande, who was in his 60s, died on the spot after several people attacked him early on Friday, foreign media said citing police.
His murder comes after the body of a Hindu priest was found with his head nearly severed in a field on Tuesday.
Most of the attacks have been blamed on, or claimed by, Islamist militants.
There was no eye-witness to the attack as it happened very early in the morning, the head of police in the north-western district of Pabna, told local media.
No group has said they carried out the attack.
