Dipankar Chakrabarty, Durjoy Bangla
3 October 2004

Dipankar Chakrabarty, editor of regional daily Durjoy Bangla, was returning home after work when five young men jumped him and hacked him to death. Neighbours heard screams and the sound of scooters on which the killers fled. They rushed into the street and found the editor’s decapitated body.

A police officer said that the murder was the work of "professionals", but he did not know the motives or the identity of those responsible.

Chakrabarty, 59, began his career as a journalist in the 1970s. He was vice-president of the Bogra branch of the Bangladesh Federal Union of Journalists (BFUJ).
