A man, who was severely injured allegedly by his drug addict son in Rajapur upazila on Friday night, died at a hospital in Barisal early yesterday.
The deceased, Delwar Hossain Khan, 41, was son of Abdul Hai of Kaibortakhali village in the upazila.
Quoting victim’s neighbours, Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Rajapur Police Station Jahid Hossain said
Delwar’s son Hridoy Khan, 19, used to take drugs and often demanded money from his day labourer father for the purpose.
After failing to get money, Hridoy swooped on his father and hit him on the head with an iron rod on Friday night and fled the scene, leaving him critically injured.
Family members rescued injured Delwar and took him to Rajapur Upazila Health Complex from where he was shifted to Barishal Sher-E-Bangla Medical College Hospital the same night.
Delwar succumbed to his injures while undergoing treatment there early yesterday, the OC said, adding that after conducting autopsy the body was handed over to the deceased’s family.
They were conducting drives in different areas to arrest the culprit, said the officer.
