Youth murders sister's husband, turns himself in
Around 8:30am yesterday, a twenty-year-old youth turned up at Kotwali Police Station of Chittagong city and said he had murdered his brother-in-law.
Police first interrogated him, and then visited the house he lived in and found a body there packed in a sack, from which blood was oozing out.
The deceased was Anjan Dhar, 35, a goldsmith and husband of the youth's sister.
Police recovered the body from his rented house at Afim Goli in Teribazar area, a day after he was stabbed to death by his brother-in-law Babul Dhar.
Sub-inspector Sumit Das of Kotwali, who visited the scene, said Babul used to work with Anjan in a gold ornament shop in nearby Hazari Goli area and live with him and his sister at the rented flat.
Quoting Babul, police said Anjan was killed between 9:00am to 10:00am on Sunday.
Babul was angry because his brother-in-law used to have frequent quarrels with his sister Priyanka Dhar over Anjan's "extra-marital affair", said the SI.
He said Babul's sister and her two children were outside the house when he was murdered.
Police quoted Priyanka as saying that around 2:00pm Sunday, Sumit informed her that his brother-in-law went to Manikchari and asked Priyanka to go to her father's house. Accordingly, Priyanka went to her father's house with her two children and spent the night there, police said.
In the morning, police informed Priyanka of the killing.
“We are interrogating the family. The sack and body would be examined by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). After investigation it could be known whether Babul alone did the murder or someone else was with him,” said SI Sumit.
Suman Dhar, younger brother of Anjan, said Priyanka might also have been involved in the murder.
Babul and Priyanka were in police custody.
