Bangladesh (MNN)–Gospel for Asia leaders in Bangladesh are mourning the death of 25-year old Laxman Das.

He was found on the side of a highway near the town of Dangil, approximately 100 kilometers (62 miles) outside of the capital city of Dhaka.

Reports show that he died of a severe blow to the head. Police believe he was murdered on the night of January 6.

Laxman graduated from a GFA Bible college in 2001 and was working full-time as a missionary. He had already established a church in his village located in the northern part of Bangladesh.

GFA leaders are still waiting for more details from the police investigation. Laxman is survived by his young wife and five-month-old child.

Gospel for Asia is currently training 77 students in two Bible colleges in the country. GFA also has 98 full-time native missionaries in Bangladesh who have planted 75 churches and 100 mission stations.
