A youth stabbed his two uncles to death following family feud at Beturia village of Sujanagar upazila in Pabna.

The deceased were identified as Abu Taleb, 52, and Abul Kalam, sons of Abdus Samad of the village. The alleged killer was their nephew Ripon, 22, son of Abu Hanif,  who is the third sibling of the deceased.

Sirajul Islam Shahjahan, chairman of Dulai Union Parishad, said family members of Abu Hanif and Abul Kalam engaged in an altercation over the ownership of a tree at 9pm on June 26.
