Nephew confesses to killing Kushtia schoolteacher

KUSHTIA: A nephew of slain Kushtia Zilla School teacher Rokshana Khanam confessed to his involvement in the killing of  his aunt, said Khairul Alam, superintendent of Kushtia police, reports UNB.

Detectives arrested Nawroz Kabir Nishat, 20, son of late AKM Nur-e-Aslam and a nephew of Rokshana, on Monday night after Rokshana’s husband Mostafizur Rahman filed a murder case against some unidentified people with Kushtia police station.

Nawroz told police  that he along with his brother and mother live on the fourth floor of the six-story building owned by Rokshana, said Khairul Alam.
