In Debiganj of Panchagarh, the son-in-law killed his mother-in-law in anger at his wife because of her relationship with another man. Police have arrested the girl’s husband in this incident.
After the dead body of Chinta Rishi (65) was recovered from the septic tank of his house at around 2.30 pm on Monday yesterday, the cause of the incident was revealed by police action within 8 hours.
Panchagarh Additional Superintendent of Police Kanak Kumar Das (Crime and Ops) confirmed this information to reporters in a press briefing at his office on Tuesday (November 7).
The Additional Superintendent of Police said that about 6-7 years ago Chinta Rishi’s daughter was married to Renu Rishi, who was married to Mukul Chandra Roy, son of the deceased Khageshwar Roy of Balagram area of Jaldhaka Upazila of neighboring Nilphamari district. After marriage, Renu finds out that her husband has a previous wife. This led to a deterioration in their relationship and Renu divorced her husband and moved in with her mother. After that, when the relationship is normal again, Renu and Mukul start living together. At one point Renu went to Gazipur for work. There she fell in love with a man named Al Amin. When Renu’s husband Mukul came to know about this, the relationship between the two deteriorated. Recently, Renu Al Amin visited his mother’s house. After knowing the matter, Mukul came to Chinta Rishi’s house to catch them red-handed. Meanwhile, Chinta Rishi divided Renu and Al Amin by a trick before Mukul arrived. In this incident Chinta Rishi supported the girl and there was a quarrel between the mother-in-law and the son-in-law. Later, Mukul threatened to kill Renu and her mother over the phone.
As planned, Mukul came to Chinta Rishi’s house at around 8 am on October 30. Mukul Chandra Roy stays at his father-in-law’s house at night after eating and drinking at noon and night. Mukul sleeps on the bed of the eastern room and Chinta Rishi sleeps on the bed of the puja room.
That night (October 31) at approximately 12:30 AM to 1 AM, Mukul went to his mother-in-law’s room and cut Chinta Rishi’s trachea while he was sleeping with a sharp knife and cut the right side of his chest and abdomen. After confirming the death of the mother-in-law, Mukul buried the body and blood-soaked kantha in the septic tank of the house. Also covers the floor of the worship room. Then Mukul went back to his home in Jaldhaka around 4 am.
In this incident, Renu Rishi, the daughter of the old woman, filed a murder case at Debiganj police station as the plaintiff.
