20 June 2015, Nirapad News: A man allegedly hacked four members of family, indulging his minor son, to death at Bhimpur tribal village in Panchbibi Upazila of the district early Saturday.
Police, however, arrested the suspected killer– Sumon Hembrom, son of Nabin Hembron of Nowana village of the upazila.
The deceased were identified as Sumon’s mother-on-law Rani Hasda, 45, his six-year-old son Sunny Hembrom, sister-in-law Tereza Marandi, 23, his wife’s uncle Markel Marandi, 50,.
Police and family sources said that Sumon’s wife Silvia had an extra marital affair for long. After failure to prevent her to do so, Sumon informed her family members. However, they had been indulging Silvia instead of opposing her to do so.

Only Silvia survived the brutal attack. She was undergoing treatment at Panchbibi Upazila Health Complex.
