Boy killed before mother |
A nine-year-old boy was brutally murdered in front of his mother apparently out of revenge at Kamalpur village in Nikli upazila in the early hours of yesterday.
Police quoting villagers said a group of 5-6 men swooped on the house of Idris Ali, a farmer, at around 2:30am. Ali was however not home.
The attackers tied his wife Nuresa Banu to a pole and slit the throat of her son Julhas in front of her.
Police suspect the murder to be a sequel to previous enmity.
Police sent the body to sadar hospital for autopsy.
