An ambulance driver named Zahurul Islam (45) was killed by fellow miscreants in a trivial incident in Shajahanpur, Bogra.
The incident took place in Chakkanpara area of the upazila on Friday midnight. At this time, a microbus was vandalized.
Inspector in charge of Kaigari police outpost Morshedul Hasan said that the body was recovered at night and sent to Bogra Shahid Ziaur Rahman Medical College (Shajimek) hospital morgue. Besides, three people have been arrested for being involved in the murder.
Police, witnesses and relatives said that Zahurul Islam is the son of Abdul Quddus of Chakkanpara (part of Bogra municipality) of Shajahanpur upazila in Bogra. He used to hire and drive ambulances for the transport of patients at Shajimek Hospital.
On Friday evening, Rabbi, a driver in the same area, left his ambulance in front of his house and went inside. At this time someone broke a looking glass of his car (ambulance). When the rabbi saw it after leaving the house, he suspected Bappi, the nephew of the deceased Zahurul Islam, who was sitting next to him.
Rabbi, Harun, Salim and Sadiq started arguing with Zahurul Islam. Then the glass of Rabbi’s ambulance was broken.
Meanwhile, Zahurul was walking home from the medical center around 12:30 pm. When he reached the back of Hotel Naz Garden, the rabbi surrounded him (Zahrul) with his supporters Harun, Salim and Sadiq. At one point they stabbed him and ran away. In this situation, when Zahurul went home, his relatives rescued him and took him to Bogra Shajimek Hospital. There the doctor declared him dead.
Inspector in-charge of Kaigari police outpost Morshedul Hasan said that the ambulance’s looking glass was vandalized and the killing occurred due to verbal altercation, vandalism and stabbing. Harun, Salim and Sadiq from the same area were arrested in the night on suspicion of involvement in the murder. The body has been sent to the morgue. The murder case is being prepared in this regard.
