Md Joynal Abedin Khan :
The nine-member assailants targeted only Jakaria among the four deceased whose throat-silt bodies have recently been found in a paddy field near Duboier Beel area in Shibganj upazila of Bogura district.
They also killed Shahabul Islam who was accompanied by Jakaria while going to take drugs at the alleged killer Rubel's house. Rubel Uddin and Khabir Uddin were also slaughtered as they witnessed the killing incident of Shahabul and Jakaria, Superintendent of Police of the district Ali Ashraf Bhuyan, told  
 The New Nation on Monday evening.
"One of the killers gave Tk 6,000 to Jakaria as loan, and a clash started among Jakaria and money lender. The killers also snatched the mobile phone of Jakaria, and made a plan of killing Jakaria just three days before the sensational killings on 6 May," the police official said quoting the confessions of three detained killers.
Earlier, a joint-team of law enforcing agencies conducted several long drives and arrested the killers Abul Kalam Azad, Rubel and Jeuel Sheikh on Sunday night. A local court ordered for three accused to send to jail on Monday afternoon, the SP said.
"All the deceased and killers were engaged in drug trading," the police official said.
We have visited the spot along with the detained killers. They gave the description of the sensational film-like killings, the SP said.
Jewel confessed to the police that they took a plan to kill Jakaria over the dispute of distribution of drug peddling of Tk 6000, the SP claimed.
The families also confessed to the cops that the murder might have been committed over Yaba trade.
The investigation of the murder case will be completed after more interrogation of the accused on remand, he said.
The drive to nab the six others accused to be continued, he added.  
Yaba trade became a very common incident in the area, and some people involved in politics were patronizing Yaba traders, said Atmul Union Parishad Chairman Md Mozaffar Hosain.  He suspected the killing of the four took place over Yaba trade.
On May 7, locals spotted the bodies in a paddy field around 9:30am and informed police. The bodies were sent to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College for autopsies, said Shahid Mahmud Khan, OC of Shibganj Police Station.
