Asaduzzaman khairul, Savar (Dhaka): Ashulia police recovered the body of a child wrapped in a blanket from a room in a five-storey building in Buri Bazar Baganbari area of 7th ward of Dhamsona Union under Ashulia police station. (22-04-2021) The incident took place at the child’s home on Thursday night. The deceased has been identified as Sajjat Hossain 10, son of Yusuf Hossain of Sadar police station in Bhola district.
Initially, the idea was to kill the child when he was alone in the house. It is believed that the gold jewelery and money were looted at that time. Yusuf along with his wife and children were living in a 5-storey flat of Abdul Mannan’s 6-storey building in Buribazar area of Ashulia.
According to the family sources of the deceased child, both the husband and wife are working. The mother of the child returns home first after work as usual. The search began without finding the baby. Later, the upper floor of the bathroom of the house was found wrapped in a blanket inside the roof. Besides, gold jewelery and money were also looted from the house.
Ashulia police arrested a suspect in the incident. Ashulia Police Station SI Alamin said Ripon Mia, a neighbor of the flat next door, was detained for questioning if he looked suspicious. Ripon, son of Shah Alam Hossain of Rangpur district, is a garment worker by profession but has been unemployed for a long time. Ripon lived with his family in the flat next to the slain children. Arrangements are being made to send him to the court by noon on Friday 23-04-2021 after finding the truth in the preliminary interrogation.
