His wife Asha Moni pressed charges againts four unidentified persons with the Khilgaon Police Station late on Friday night, Inspector Anwar Hossain Khan told bdnews24.com.

Niloy was hacked to death in his home in Gorhan on Friday afternoon by suspected Islamist militants.

Al-Qaeda’s Indian offshoot AQIS’s ‘Bangladesh branch’ has purportedly claimed responsibility.

Police say the murder was planned. 

The UN, US, and the Amnesty International have condemned the killing and called upon the authorities to bring the killers to justice.

Niloy is the fourth blogger to have been killed this year.

All of them were involved with the Ganajagaran Mancha, a popular movement demanding maximum penalty for war crimes convicts and outlawing of religion-based politics.
