A teenager named Rifat Mia (17) was beaten to death in Jamalpur’s Sarishabari for gambling on a mobile phone.
Police recovered his body on Thursday (September 1) afternoon and sent it to the morgue for autopsy.
Deceased Rifat is the son of Ashraf Hossain, a mentally challenged person of Balardiya village of Sarishabari Municipality.
According to police and local sources, Rahat Mia (20), son of Sultan Mahmud of Ballardiya village, and the deceased Rifat were two friends of the house. On Wednesday (August 31) evening, they were gambling on their mobile phones while sitting on the balcony of Balardiya Government Primary School. At one point, when a dispute arose between the two, a fight ensued. Rahat went to Rifat’s house at night and beat him up.
The family treated him locally. Later, when the condition worsened, he was admitted to Upazila Health Complex on Thursday morning. Rifat died on the way to Jamalpur General Hospital for better treatment.
Sarishabari Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Muhammad Mohabbat Kabir said that the killer fled after the incident, so it has not been possible to arrest him yet. In this regard, police are preparing to file a murder case.
