Rima’s extra-marital lover Safiullah arrested

Police have arrested Safiullah, an extra-marital lover of the mother Rima Begum, in a case filed by her husband in connection with the murder of two children in Ashuganj, Brahmanbaria.

Ashuganj police arrested him from Abdullahpur in Dhaka around 5:15 pm on Monday (March 26).

Brahmanbaria Additional Superintendent of Police (Administration and Crime) Mollah Mohammad Shaheen said Safiullah was being brought to Brahmanbaria from Dhaka.

According to media reports, Rima Begum worked as a labourer in a flat. There she formed an illicit relationship with Safiullah, who promised to marry her.

Later, she claimed that the two children died of consuming the syrup.
