Quoting neighbours, Panchagarh Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) SM Shafiqul Islam said Shahidul, a drug addict, often used to put pressure on his mother for money.

As a sequel, Shahidul might have stabbed his mother at their courtyard before fleeing the scene yesterday noon, the ASP quoted the neighbours as saying.

Hearing her cry for help, locals took injured Joytun to Panchagarh Sadar Hospital where the doctors declared her dead. 

Slain Joytun's neighbour Maleka Begum, 47, said about two to three years ago Shahidul stabbed his father for the same reason.
