Policeman’s mother and father killed in Dhaka’s Jatrabari

A couple has been hacked and strangled to death in Dhaka’s Jatrabari. Their son is a sub-inspector in the police Special Branch.

The dead were identified as Shafiqur Rahman, 60, and his wife Farida Yasmin, 50. Their son is Sub-Inspector Emon.

Their deaths were reported around 7:30am on Thursday, said Inspector Zakir Hossain of Jatrabari Police Station.

It is initially believed that Shafiqur was hacked to death and his wife strangled. Shafiqur was a former bank official. It is not yet clear whether they were killed in a premeditated manner or during a robbery.

Shafiqur and Farida lived with their son Emon at a four-storey building in Jatrabari. Emon and his wife went on an Eid trip, leaving the couple at home.

Shafiqur had left home for Fajr prayers early in the morning. A short time later, a neighbour called 999 and reported an attack. Shafiqur’s body was found in the garage on the ground floor, while Farida’s body was found in a bedroom on the first floor.
