Sujan Vaishnav (25), a worker of Alipur Pran RFL Company in Shayestaganj Upazila, was killed by a sharp steel blow due to a love affair. Another killer Mintu Mia has been arrested and handed over to the police. Fights often occur inside the company with the girlfriend. But the other workers think that the authorities did not pay attention and it increased day by day and eventually turned into murder. The incident took place around 4 pm on Sunday (October 3).
The deceased were identified as Sujan, son of Sumlal Vaishnav of Karcha village under Baniachang upazila and Mintu, son of Saju Miah of Uluhar village under Shayestaganj upazila. Both of them were working as machine operators of Pran RFL company.
It is learned that both of them used to work as operators in the machine section of the company. At one point, Sujan fell in love with a company worker. At that time yesterday, Mintu insulted his girlfriend. At one stage, Sujan and Mintu had an argument. Mintu gets angry and hits Sujan Vaishnav in the chest and abdomen with a sharp piece of steel near his hand. He was immediately rescued by other colleagues and taken to Sadar Hospital where the on-duty doctor declared him dead. When other workers arrested Mintu and informed Shayestaganj police station, a group of police went to the spot and took Mintu to the police station. Sadar police made an inquest of Sujan’s body and sent it to the morgue.
