The arrestees were identified as Sujan, 18, Azim, 18 and Manik, 19.
At a press briefing held at DB headquarters yesterday, DB officials said they were examining the video footage from an ATM booth of BRAC Bank, Mogdapara branch from where money was withdrawn using the ATM card of Milton.
The double murder took place following a dispute over lending Tk 1.65 lakh, claimed DB officials quoting the suspects.
At the briefing, Deputy Commissioner (DB-North) Mahabubor Rahman said Milton had borrowed Tk 1.65 lakh from suspected prime killer Sujan of Banglamotor several months ago, but Milton was yet to return the money.
“On that fateful morning, Sujan and his two cohorts bought rope, two knives and a sickle from Karwanbazar and went to Milton's flat. As Sujan was well known in the family, Milton's mother opened the door”, DC Mahbub said quoting the killers.
The killers strangulated Brigania Rozario and then slaughtered Milton. Before killing Milton, they snatched away BRAC Bank ATM card of Milton and forcibly got the password of the ATM card, DC Mahabubor Rahman said.
During investigation, the detectives came to know that Tk 40,000 was withdrawn from Moghdapara ATM booth of BRAC Bank after the killing of Milton.
From video footage of the ATM booth, the DB police identified Sujan as one of killers and arrested him from Kamrangichar. Following his statement, the DB police raided different parts of the capital and arrested Azim from Eskaton area and Manik from Kathalbagan area.
