US-based monitoring service SITE, who have been tracking ISIS, broke the news quoting information from the militant group’s Amaq news agency.
Police are blaming domestic militants for the attack. This is not the first time that ISIS has claimed responsibility for a killing in Bangladesh. Few days back a 60-year-old Christian grocer was also hacked to death after Sunday prayers and ISIS had claimed responsibility for that attack as well.
Since then, more than 30 people including members of religious minorities, liberal bloggers and academics have been killed in similar attacks in Bangladesh.
Though time and again ISIS or Al Qaeda have claimed responsibility for majority of these killings, the government continues to deny existence of either groups in Bangladesh.
