RAB 9 Media Officer Afsan Al Alam confirmed this information. On Tuesday, August 23, at approximately 11:00 am, the police recovered the bloodied body of Afia Begum alias Samiha (25), a mother of one child, by breaking the lock of a flat on the ground floor of Sikander Mahal, a five-storey house, Focus 364, Baluchar area under Shahparan police station of Sylhet city. Afia is the daughter of Azar Uddin of Jangail village of Goainghat upazila of Sylhet district. This sensational event was widely discussed in the media through the country.
In this incident, Afia’s mother Kutina Begum filed a murder case in Shahparan police station on August 24 as an anonymous accused. After filing the complaint, RAB-9 started intelligence operations to unravel the mystery of the incident. At one stage of the investigation, sensational information was found that Majeda Khatun alias Munni (29) of Baniachang was involved in the murder. Following this, based on the intelligence information, multiple raiding teams of RAB-9 arrested Mosha Majed alias Munni, the main accused involved in the murder, in his own area. Majeda said in the initial interrogation that there was a dispute with the deceased Afia over money transactions. Majeda used to stay at the house of the deceased Afia but Majeda used to stay at the victim’s house for 5/7 days a month. Killer Majeda used to collect money from the deceased Afia at various times.
Majeda refused to pay the victim Afia the money owed. As a result Majeda also plans to kill the victim Afia alias Samiha. Two days before the incident, Majeda came to Afia’s house on August 18. On the day of the incident, August 20, at approximately 10 pm, the deceased Afia and the accused Majeda had an argument over the money due. On August 21, at around 12 o’clock in the night, suddenly Majeda Begum took a sheel (putter) from the kitchen and hit Afia on the left side of her head 2 times in quick succession. As a result of the injury, Afia immediately collapsed on the bed. Later, around 6 am, he left the house and hired a rickshaw and locked the house door from outside and took Majeda’s goods and Afia’s mobile phone and hid Baniachong in his own house. In the incident, surprisingly, Afia’s 2-year-old daughter, who was trapped in the house, survived. Later in the afternoon, the accused was handed over to the concerned police station. The deceased’s mother, Kuti Begum, said that my daughter Afia Begum used to come to Sylhet city to work in different houses after 11/12 years ago. While working as a domestic worker, one gets married to a man named Ashraf. They lived in Shibganj, Majumdar Para area.
