Killers still sought in murders of “JESUS” workers in Bangladesh

By August 26, 2005

Bangladesh (MNN) — Police are continuing to seek the killers of Tapan Kumar Roy and Liplal Mardi, two Christians brutally murdered in Bangladesh on the night of Wednesday, July 27.

Roy and Mardi were healthcare workers for Christian Life in Bangladesh and often showed the “JESUS” Film at the invitation of local villagers.

Edward Ayub, a respected area Christian leader, said the two men had received verbal threats from Hafez Abdullah al-Mamun, the supervisor of the madrassa (Islamic school) in Dhopapara village where the two men were based. Police regard Abdullah as a suspect, but no arrest has been made. They detained a young man named Yunus Kazi on Tuesday, Aug. 2, on suspicion of murder, but released him that night after questioning.

Pray for God’s protection on other Christian workers in Bangladesh who are sharing Christ. Pray also that because of the two men’s testimony others will turn to Christ.
