Lawmen today claimed arrest of a youth in connection to the murder of a Manarat University student in Dhaka, who was killed over alleged cricket betting.
The arrestee was primarily identified as Asif, 21.
Badda Police Station Officer-in-Charge Kazi Wazed told The Daily Star that Asif was arrested from Comilla town in connection with the murder.
Nasim Ahmed, 23, an undergraduate student of Manarat International University, was stabbed to death, allegedly over betting on Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) on November 5.
During a briefing in this regard, Mostak Ahmed, deputy commissioner of Gulshan division of police, said Nasim had assaulted Asif the day before his murder.
During primary interrogation, Asif said to have confessed stabbing Nasim to death, being enraged over the assault. However, no affiliation with BPL could be found.
Also, on the note of the murder of a businessman in Banani last night, DC Mostak said police are scrutinising the evidence and clues found from the crime scene.
“We collect the CCTV footage and are investigating the murder incident on three aspects – family feud, business-related feud and long standing feud,” he said.
He said that at least four criminals entered into the office of recruiting agency and killed Siddique Munshi and injured three employees last night.
