Feud over Savings

Elderly man killed by son

A 65-year-old man was beaten to death allegedly by his son in Monirampur upazila of Jashore on Friday night when the victim refused to give his son all his savings back.

The deceased, Tajul Islam Patwary, son of late Hasan Ali Patwary, was a resident of Galda village in the upazila.

Officer in Charge of Monirampur Police Station Sahidul Islam said alleged killer Anwar Hossain, 35, who used to work in Malaysia with his elder brother Humayun Kabir, recently returned home.

Quoting the deceased's family members, the OC said, while working in Malaysia Anwar sent Tk 15 lakh to his father at different times.

Since returning home, Anwar had been demanding his money back from his father, but he was not paying any heed, the OC said

As a sequel, they both locked in an altercation on Friday night and at one stage, Anwar hit his father on the head with an iron rod and fled the scene, leaving him dead on the spot, police said.

Being informed, police recovered the body and sent it to Jashore General Hospital for autopsy, the OC said, adding that deceased's elder son filed a case with Monirampur Police Station against Anwar yesterday.
