Constable’s wife was raped before being killed
A police constable's wife was raped before being killed at her Gazipur home on the night of September 10.
This was revealed by the Manikganj superintendent of police, Mohammad Golam Azad Khan, at a press conference at his office yesterday afternoon.
The SP said they solved the mystery of the murder, arrested all the "killers" and recovered looted goods within four days of the incident.
The arrestees are: Kabir Hossain, 30, his wife Akhi Moni Lipi, 20, and their relatives Riaz Uddin Sarker, 26, and Shakil Hossain, 19.
"The constable rented a house for his wife and two children in Manikganj town's Reserve Tank area last month. The cop used to stay at his workplace in Gazipur," said Azad.
Kabir and Lipi were acquaintances of the victim housewife. The four went to her home on Friday night. They put sleeping tablets in soft drinks and fruit juice and made the victim and her two children drink it.
As the three fell unconscious, they took the two children to an adjacent room. Riaz Uddin raped the constable's wife. The four then tied her hands and legs and strangled her. They took three mobile phones, gold jewellery and money from the house before fleeing, the SP told journalists.
The following day, police recovered the victim's body from her house. Her father filed a murder case with Manikganj Sadar Police Station accusing unidentified people.
The SP said the four killed the homemaker to loot money and jewellery. Police recovered the looted mobile phones, gold jewellery and Tk 5,000 from the arrestees.
Azad said they first picked up Lipi on Tuesday based on information provided by the victim's daughter. The three others were arrested after gleaning information from Lipi.
The police official said the arrestees confessed to the killing and looting.
Jaminur Rahman, sub-inspector of Manikganj Sadar Police Station and also the investigating officer of the murder case, said the arrestees were produced before the Manikganj Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court around noon yesterday. The court sent the four to jail.
