Staff Reporter :
Police in a raid on Thursday night arrested Riya Begum alias Moina, 27, from Satarkul area in the city on her suspicious links with the Badda killing incident, said Rafiqul Islam, Officer-in-Charge of Badda Police Station.
Renu, a 42-year-old mother of two from Mohakhali was beaten to death by a mob on July 20. Police have so far arrested 14 people, including Moina, in connection with the lynching.
The woman, who was living at Mohakhali with her 11-year old son and 4-year old daughter, went to a school there to inquire about admission of her children. But guardians took her to the headmaster's room for questioning on suspicion that she was an abductor.
Angry locals, who gathered outside on hearing rumours that "a child abductor has been caught", snatched her away and beat her indiscriminately. Police responded immediately but the woman died before they arrived.
At least six people, including Renu, have been killed recently following rumours that "child abductors are on the prowl to collect heads and blood for construction of Padma Bridge" spread on social media, especially Facebook.
