Dhaka, July 29 (IANS) At least one person was killed and over a hundred were injured Tuesday in clashes at Eid prayers over not fasting during Ramadan in Bangladesh.

The clashes occurred in five upazilas (sub-districts) of Habiganj district in the Sylhet division, bdnews24.com reported.

A man identified as Shamim, 50, was beaten to death in Begunai, a village in Lakhai upazila, when followers of the Union Parisad's former chairman Morshed Kamal Moshahid and a former member clashed because someone who did not keep fast came to attend Eid prayers.

"We later recovered the body," said Mozammel Haque, Habiganj assistant superintendant of police.

More sporadic clashes were reported in Lakhai, Bahubal, Ajmiriganj, Shayestaganj and Sadar upazilas over "not fasting in Ramadan" or "delay in Eid prayers".

Over a hundred people were admitted to various hospitals in Habiganj.
