Police Sunday morning arrested a suspected killer who had allegedly hacked his brother and his sister-in-law to death in the capital’s Sabujbagh area.
Mohammad Asaduzzaman, officer-in-charge of Sabujbagh Police Station, claimed that the law enforcers managed to capture Mohammad Shaheen when he was roaming in the area around 6:00am.
On the other hand, locals claimed that Shaheen, who was on the run after the incident, came out from his hideout to surrender to the law enforcers.
On October 12, Mohammad Shaheen hacked his brother's wife Rabeya Khatun and his brother Mostafizur Rahman, as Mostafizur was trying to shield his wife, indiscriminately centering a family feud killing Rabeya on the spot.
Injured Mostafizur was first rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) in a critical condition and later shifted to Special Care Hospital on Panthapath where he died on October 13.
