Priest leaves Pabna after murder attempt
Pabna: Christian priest Luk Sarkar, who escaped a murder attempt on 5 October, left the district last week.
Monirul Islam, owner of the house where Luk Sarkar and his family used to live, said the priest and his family left the house at about 7:00am on Tuesday without any prior notice.
Bhanu Bosh, supervisor (Pabna and Kushtia zone) of ‘Faith Bible Church’, said Luk Sarkar was transferred to Khulna, but did not disclose his present work station.
Ishwardi police officer-in charge Biplob Kumar Dash said Luk Sarkar, the priest of ‘Faith Bible Church’ in Ishwardi upazila, left the district on a transfer order as he had been suffering from a sense of insecurity after the murder attempt on him earlier this month.
On 5 October, miscreants attempted to kill Luk by cutting his throat at School Para in Ishwardi upazila of the district.
