Two people were killed in Jashore and Jamalpur on Wednesday night while a youth died of suffocation after his scarf got entangled with the wheels of a three-wheeler in Faridpur.
Our Benapole correspondent reported that, a young man was stabbed to death by his rivals allegedly over a previous enmity in Navaron area under Sharsha upazila of Jashore.
The deceased, Zahidul Islam, 30, son of Abdur Jabbar of Narayanpur village, was a Clearing and Forwarding (C&F) agent.
Quoting the deceased's family members, police said Zahidul gave Tk 7 lakh to Beauty Khatun, wife of Jharu Mia, for sending him to America, which developed a feud between the two.
On Wednesday night, Beauty called Zahidul at her Kazirber home saying she would pay back the money, police said, adding that as Zahidul entered the house Beauty and her cohorts stabbed him indiscriminately inside the bathroom, leaving him dead.
They later wrapped the body in a sack and dumped it at a nearby banana field the same night.
