Dhaka: A student leader of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Thursday died of wounds suffered during an explosion while "making bombs" in a house in Dhaka`s Lalbagh.
Mahbubur Rahman Bappi died around 6 a.m. Thursday, said Mozammel Haque, sub inspector of the police outpost at Dhaka Medical College and Hospital.
Bappi was the general secretary of BNP student front Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal`s New Market unit.
Police said the 25-year old student leader was making bombs at his brother-in-law`s house Wednesday when the explosion took place.
The BNP-led alliance`s indefinite countrywide blockade, that began Jan 5, has been marked by numerous cases of bomb attacks and arson on vehicles.
