Dhaka, Apr 8 (IBNS): Militant group al-Qaeda's Bangladesh division Ansar al-Islam has claimed responsibility for the killing of blogger Nazimuddin Samad.

"Ansar al-Islam, the Bangladesh division of al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), claimed credit for the murder of blogger Nazimuddin Samad in the capital, Dhaka," SITE Intelligence Group claimed on its website on Friday.

Nazimuddin Samad, a law student, was hacked by machetes and later shot at a traffic junction, BBC reported.

He was reportedly an organiser of 'Ganajagran Manch', a secular campaigning group.

Samad was believed to be a secular person as he wrote 'I have no religion' in his Facebook profile under religious views.
