Staff Reporter :
A 26-year-old man named Zahir Munshi was strangled to death in Sabujbagh of the capital. He was a owner of a tea stall. According to the police, Zaheer’s body was recovered from Khalpar of Kadamtala in Sabujbagh around 12:30 pm on Friday.
The deceased had sharp weapon wounds in different parts of his body. His death was confirmed by cutting his throat.
Police have arrested a man named Nazmul Hossain in connection with the incident. However, he has not yet confessed to the murder.
Sabujbagh Police Station Inspector (Investigation) Aminul Bashar told the media saying that after the incident, locals arrested Nazmul and handed him over to police.
It is suspected that he killed Zahir Munshi. But the accused has not yet admitted the matter.
Inspector Aminul said that Zaheer and Nazmul had a dispute over the money. It was initially reported that the murder was caused for this reason.
Zaheer’s brother-in-law Abdul Matin told media that Zaheer and Nazmul used to rent the same house two years ago. Nazmul moved to another place without paying tk 7,000 for rent. Consequently Zaheer paid the money. When Zaheer met Nazmul a few days ago, he wanted money.
As a result, there was a quarrel between the two.
Due to this, Nazmul called Zahir from the tea shop and ‘killed’ him. His brother-in-law was also with Nazmul at the time of the incident. He fled the scene.
Victim Zaheer was the son of one Moklech Munshi of Sakua village in Chandpur Sadar. He lived with his family in Kadamtala area.
