RANGPUR: Rangpur unit of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) unearthed the motive of a clueless murder of a minor girl and arrested her killer father making the best use of science and modern technologies, reports BSS.

“A special PBI team arrested the killer father from Rasulpur Railway Quarter at Saidpur in Nilphamari district on Thursday, only 11 days after starting investigation,” Superintendent of Police (SP) of Rangpur PBI ABM Jakir Hossain said on Saturday afternoon.

The arrested person is Nur Mohammad of Jagda village (Muktijoddha Para) in Pirganj upazila of Thakurgaon district.

Earlier, police recovered body of Nurani Akhter Nupur, 8, daughter of Nur from his residence at Rasulpur Railway Quarter in Saidpur upazila town on April 3, 2020, when Nur claimed that Nupur committed suicide by hanging herself.

An unnatural death case was filed in this connection with Saidpur police station.

The post mortem report confirmed that the minor girl was strangled to death.

After conducting investigation into the case for 10 months, Saidpur Thana police could not unearth motive of the murder and failed to arrest anybody in this connection.

Later, a Nilphamari court handed over the charge of investigation into the case to Rangpur unit of PBI in mid-February.

After conducting an investigation into the case and comprehensively interrogating Nur taking advantage of modern science and technologies, the PBI investigation team led by its SP Jakir Hossain found that the girl was strangled by her father.

“During interrogation, Nur admitted that Nupur requested him to give his android mobile phone set to her on April 3, 2020 when Nupur called him a bitch making him angry and he strangled her to death,” SP Jakir said.

The arrested person gave confessional statement under section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1898 when Investigation Officer of Rangpur PBI Sub-inspector Nure Alam Siddique produced him before a Nilphamari court on Friday.

“The court sent the arrested man to jail hajat,” SP Jakir said, adding that the investigation into the case still continues.
