Stalker stabs 13-yr-old to death
A teenage girl was murdered by her stalker at Sarafdinagar village under Harirampur upazila of Manikganj yesterday afternoon.
The victim Brishti Akter, 13, is the daughter of Ramjan Ali of the Sarafdinagar village.
Abul, 35, a local rickshaw puller and son of Hasmat Ali of the same village, allegedly been stalking and harassing her. Locals claimed that the young girl had been ignoring Abul's continued advances.
But the situation worsened to the point where her family complained to village elders. A village arbitration was then held in which Abul was issued a warning, the locals said, adding that the warning failed to deter Abdul.
They claimed that Brishti's family recently had allegedly been trying to marry her off. Abul heard about it and got angry.
He entered Brishti's house yesterday around 1:00pm and hacked the girl with a sharp weapon, almost beheading her, victim's family members and locals said.
Officer-in-Charge Lutfar Rahman of Harirampur Police Station said the alleged killer Abul fled.
Police sent the dead body to Manikganj Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsy.
