AKM Shamim Hasan, officer-in-charge of Abhaynagar Police Station, "We are investigating to find the motive behind the triple-murder."
Sabina's father, Mujibur Rahman, said, "Zahirul married my daughter around 13 years ago. Since then, they would fight a lot."
Last month, Sabina went to her father's house with her children and were there till Friday afternoon, when Zahirul picked them up.
"That day, Sabina and Zahirul got into a fight again," Mujibur said.
"Zahirul's father called me suddenly and told me that his son is being arrested. When I asked why, he told me to go to their house and see.
"When I went there, I saw my daughter and grandchildren dead."
