The victim was identified as Mintu Khan (38), who was born in Shariatpur but lived Dhaka's Uttara for a long period of time before moving to South Africa 10 years ago.
According to the sources of local Bangladeshi expatriates, an unidentified man came to his supershop to buy cigarettes when the security guard was not at the shop.

The local police are investigating the matter and they have already launched operations to nab the attacker.
Mintu's supershop had a monthly turnover of about a million Rand (South African currency) which is about Tk 56.68 lakh.
