Qatar returnee stabbed dead in Sylhet

A man in Sylhet, who recently returned from Qatar and has been stuck in the country because of the suspension of flights due to the coronavirus outbreak, died at a hospital last night an hour after being stabbed by unidentified miscreants.

The incident took place around 11:00pm on Thursday night at Haidarpur village of Sylhet Sadar upazila, reports our Sylhet correspondent.

The deceased was identified as Fahim Ahmed, 24, son of late Manik Miah of the village, police said.

Fahim came from Qatar four months ago on vacation and could not return due to the suspension of flights. He was supposed to return to Qatar in March, Okil Uddin, officer-in-charge of Jalalabad Police Station, said quoting family of the deceased.  

"On Thursday night at around 11, Fahim was stabbed by some unidentified miscreants while out for a stroll," OC Okil said.

"Locals took him to Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College Hospital where he died an hour later," he also said.

"No case has been filed yet in this connection but we are looking into the matter and trying to nab the culprits," the OC added.
