Child brutally killed in Sunamganj

A 5-year-old child was brutally murdered by some miscreants at Kezaura village in Derai upazila in Sunamganj district on Monday.

The deceased was identified as Tuhin, son of Abdul Baser Mia of Kenaura village in the upazila.

Victim’s relatives said Tuhin was picked up by the killers from his house sometime at night while he was asleep.

The miscreants severed his ear, private parts and throat and hung his body from a tree. Two knives used in the murder were found stuck in his abdomen.

Considering the intensity of the violence, the news of the murder triggered widespread outcry in social media.  

Officer-in-charge of Derai Police Station KM Nazrul Islam said police recovered the body of the child and sent it to Sunamganj Sadar Hospital for autopsy.

Baser Mia along with his three sons and two daughters were sleeping after having their dinner like any other day. Later around 3am, they woke up hearing the sound of the door opening when Tuhin was already missing from the house.

After searching for an hour they found the body of the minor hanging from a tree beside a local mosque.

Baser Mia said “I don’t understand how my son was stolen from my side. I live by doing agricultural work, have no rivalry with others. How this can happen, I don’t know.”

District police inspector of Special Branch Anowar Hossain Mridha and officer-in-charge of Detective Branch Kazi Muktadir Hossain detained four people including victim’s father for primary interrogation.
