A teen girl was allegedly killed by feeding poison-mixed food on her birthday party in the capital.
The deceased identified as Sweaty Akhter Momo, 15, a resident of the Kamrangirchar area, was fed the food at her friend’s residence at Chawkbazar on Friday.
A murder case was filed with Kamrangirchar Police Station on Sunday in this regard. On that day, police arrested three alleged accused Shipon, Hanif and Jahangir.
Although the incident occurred on Sunday, it brought to light on Monday.
Mostafizur Rahman, officer-in-charge (OC) of Kamrangirchar Police Station, told the Daily Sun that Friday (January 21) was the birthday of the victim and she wanted to observe it, but her mother forbade.
When her mother, a domestic help by profession, went out of their residence at Muslimbagh, she and some of her friends went to a residence of one Babu, who is also an accused, at Chawkbazar, he said.
They observed her birthday there and fed her cake and other things, he said.
After coming to the residence, she told her mother of the matter and her mother fed her turmeric juice for recovery.
As she was not recovering and her condition deteriorated, she was rushed to the DMCH early on Sunday. She breathed her last there, he said.
Quoting doctors, the officer said that she was fed poison-mixed food.
Momo is the daughter of Mohammad Mahbub and Parvin Akhter.
