The deceased was identified as Rakib, 27, son of Alamgir H ossain of Joydebpur upazila. He was wanted in four robbery cases.
When they reached near Rakkhitpara, a group of miscreants intercepted them and took Hashi to Rakkhitpara forest after beating Ilias up mercilessly.
Later, they tied Hashi to a tree and tried to realise ransom.

They also gouged out the eyes of Rakib and broke his two legs.
Hashi lodged a complaint with Joydebpur Police at night.
