Popular News

Four men have been arrested for their alleged involvement in the murder of the Chawkbazar plastic businessman Jewel Shikder and his employee Morshed Alam.

A team of Chawkbazar Police Station arrested the four -- Nuruzzaman Howlader, Abdul Aziz Shikder, Hafez Chowkidar and Delwar Hossain Molla alias Delu -- in the capital and Barishal on Wednesday night.

Joint Commissioner (Crime) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police Biplob Bijoy Talukder disclosed the information to reporters at DMP Media Centre on Thursday.

He said the arrestees tactfully took the duo to Barishal from the capital and suffocated them to death to rob them of their cash and valuables. On December 15, the father of Jewel lodged a general diary with Chawkbazar Police Station, stating that his son and his employee Morshed went missing.

Police with the help of technological support managed to locate their position in Mehendiganj of Barishal. Later, the ill-fated father lodged an abduction case with the police station. On December 20, the body of Morshed was recovered from Char Fasson in Bhola and the body of Jewel was found at Elisha in the same district after two days.
