Father commits suicide after killing daughter

09 February 2016, Nirapad News: A man committed suicide after killing his minor daughter at Boroichala village under Bhaluka upazila of the district today.

The deceased were identified as rickshaw puller Jamil Hossain, 40, a resident of Boroichala village of the upazila and his daughter Rabeya Begum.

Officer-in-charge of Bhaluka Police Station Mamun-or-Rashid said rickshaw puller Jamil might have committed suicide to get rid of poverty.

Jamil first stabbed his one and half year old daughter to death and then stabbed himself with the same knife at about 6.30 am, the OC added. Jamil succumbed to his injuries while neighbours were taking him to Bhaluka Upazila Health Complex.

Jamil left his two sons – Shakhawat Hossain, 12, and Shah Poran, the OC said.
