The deceased is Sabuj Hossain, general secretary of no 1 Siladi union unit Juba Dal and resident of the area.
Quoting local people, police said a group of miscreants intercepted Sabuj and hacked him to death while returning to his home from his poultry farm at about 11:30pm.
Hearing hue and cry, local people went in and caught five miscreants and gave them a good thrashing while fleeing the spot after the murder.
Later they were handed over to police.
They are Belal Hossain, a local Islami Chhatra Shibir activist, his father Jaher Ahmed, his brother Riaz Hossain, Arif Hossain and Mahiuddin.
