Man kills woman in front of children
An unidentified man killed a housewife inside her Rupnagar residence in the capital by slitting her throat before the very eyes of her two young children yesterday.
The deceased Moniza Begum, 26, wife of Mohammad Hanif, employee of a garment factory, was a resident of “Ta Block” of Mirpur Section-6.
The man entered the sixth floor residence around 4:30pm and locked the door from inside. The husband was not at home, said Inspector Mahbube Khoda of Rupnagar Police Station, quoting one of the children, Khushi, 7.
“Hearing Moniza's screams, two women who came on a visit and a security guard knocked the door repeatedly. The two children inside were also crying,” he said.
When the three outside were trying to look inside through a window, the man unlocked the door and ran away. The three then found the dead women lying on the floor, he added.
“Khusi told us that she had seen the man before but she could not recognise him,” he said.
Rupnagar Police Station Officer-in-Charge Sikdar Shamim Hossain said they suspect that the crime had been pre-planned and the man was an acquaintance of the victim.
He said the children were unhurt and no valuable went missing from the house.
