The mystery surrounding two murders of a woman in Narsingdi and a man in Jashore has been unraveled in the end.

The woman, Runa Akhter, 28, was killed, as she refused a marriage proposal while the man, Milon Hossain, 40, was murdered by muggers only for Tk 100. The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) solved the two murders.

On the morning of December 15 last year, police recovered the body of Runa, wife of Abul Kalam Mia and mother of three children, from a paddy field at Char Morjal in Raipura of Narsingdi. On December 17, Mosleh Uddin Bhuiyan, father of the victim, filed a case at Raipura Police Station.

On Sunday, Mukta Dhar, special superintendent of police (Lawful Interception Cell) of the CID, told reporters that they arrested two persons named Khorshed Mia and Abdur Razzak in relation to the murder of Runa from Kalmakanda in Netrokona and Raipura in Narsingdi on Saturday. During preliminary interrogation, the arrestees confessed to their involvement to the murder, she said. The officer said that about three and a half years ago, the husband of the victim went to Saudi Arabia borrowing money from some people. After going to the oil-producing country, he stopped communicating with his wife and children and sending money, she said. Being pressured by money lenders, the woman went to her father’s house from her father-in-law’s.

About nine months ago, the wife of Khorshed Mia died. Later, Khorshed asked Abdur Razzak to find a partner for him to marry. Razzak asked Runa to marry Khorshed, but she rejected, which annoyed the duo.

On December 12, the two suffocated her to death and also gouged her eyes out.

On September 1 last year, police recovered the body of Milon Hossain, 40, from Churamonkathi in Kotwali of Jashore after he left his residence on August 28. Biplob Hossain, son of the victim, lodged a case with Benapole Port Police Station on the day the body was recovered.

Reshma Sharmin, superintendent of police (SP) of the PBI unit, said they nabbed Mohammad Hiro, 24, son of late Tota Mia of Bhoberbed of Porabari in Benapole Port, from Narail on December 31. During interrogation, Hiro said that he and his accomplices are addicted to drugs. On August 31, they tried to take away Tk 100 from Milon. As Milon tried to resist, they stabbed him, leaving him dead on the spot.
