A Bangladeshi man has been shot dead by assailants in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The deceased was identified as Sala Uddin Raihan, 35, son of Mohammad Solaiman of Matipur village in Noakhali union of Noakhali Sadar upazila.
Raihan's body has been kept in a cold storage facility in Africa, confirmed the deceased's younger brother Mosle Uddin Roman.
He said Raihan went to Africa 14 years ago in search of a livelihood. He later started a business in the Barat area of Johannesburg. He also brought his younger brother Nizam Uddin Babu there a few years ago. Raihan and Babu then ran an organization together.
Raihan had three businesses in Johannesburg, with several shareholders.
After his last visit he left Bangladesh only a month ago.
