The deceased were identified as Hasi Begum, 26, and her son Nirob Hossain, 8.

Police suspect the woman's husband Rubel Hossain, a mason by profession, killed them at night over family feud, Nur-E-Azam Mia, officer-in-charge of Banani Police Station said. Rubel is on the run, he added.

The OC said Hasi, her husband and son came to her brother's house in the slum on Monday. They went to their beds after dinner. The neighbours saw their bodies on Tuesday morning and informed police.
