A CNG auto-rickshaw driver named Khorshed Alam (37) was hacked to death by his neighbor Arafat (24) in Chittagong’s Sitakunda. The accident took place in Fakirpara area of Sitakunda municipality on Saturday (September 3) around 7:30 pm.
OC Abul Kalam Azad said that the attacker Arafat is absconding. Locals said that Arafat is mentally disturbed. Neighbors said that he used to threaten to kill people.
According to local sources, Khorshed Alam returned home from BITID Hospital in Faujdarhat in a private car around 7:30 pm on Saturday with his wife and three children. They were admitted to the hospital three days ago due to diarrhoea. Leaving his wife and children at home, Khorshed went out to pay the private car fare.
The driver was turning the car in front of Arafat’s house nearby. Then Arafat forbade the driver to drive in front of his house. Arafat quarreled with Khorshed about this. Arafat then went to his room. But after a while he brought a bow from the house and ran away with anger on Khorshed’s neck. At that time, Khorshed’s brother and neighbors came and took him to the hospital. But he died on the way to the hospital.
Jasim, the driver of the private car, said, “When Arafat forbade the car to move, I wanted to go back after seeing his furious mood. Then Khorshed asked me to drive the car from there and he had an argument with Arafat. Later Arafat came in surprise and punched Khorshed in the neck from behind.
Sitakunda Police Station OC Abul Kalam Azad told Jago News on Saturday morning, “We have initially come to know that the killing was based on a trivial incident.” The killer Arafat is on the run. A team of ours is working to arrest him. The body is in Chittagong Hospital Mortuary. The OC said that the case is under process.
