A youth was killed allegedly by his brother-in-law (younger sister's husband) over a family feud in Jhaugara area of Nandail municipality on Saturday.
The deceased was poultry farm owner Sohel Mia, 28, son of Abdul Kashem of Uttar Charani area in the municipality.
Quoting locals, Kamrul Islam Mia, officer-in-charge of Nandail Police Station, said Shahab Uddin, 30, a rickshaw-van puller in Jhaugara area, married Sohel's younger sister Tamanna four years ago. Tamanna left for Malaysia two months ago for job purposes where she has been staying now.
After going to Malaysia, Tamanna denied the marriage with Shahab and used to send money to Sohel that created a feud between Shahab and Sohel, said the OC. Shahab tactfully took Sohel to his house around 5:00pm on Saturday and entertained him with tea and biscuits.
When Sohel was having the tea and biscuits, Shahab allegedly started hacking him with a sharp weapon, leaving him critically injured, said the police official.
Hearing screams, neighbours rushed to the spot, rescued the victim and sent him to Nandail Upazila Health Complex where doctors declared him dead.
Soon after the incident, Shahab fled the scene. But within an hour, he surrendered to Nandail Police Station.
Police recovered the body and sent it to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital for autopsy.
During primary interrogation, Shahab confessed to killing Sohel, said Ruhul Quddus Khan, OC (investigation) of Nandail Police Station. .
He was produced before a court, which sent him to jail yesterday afternoon.
The victim's father lodged a case with the police station accusing Shahab, said OC Ruhul.
