The CID official said: “As part of the plan, Raihanul bought two soft drinks (Speed) from a local shop and mixed sleeping pills in them. He gave the drink mixed with sleeping pills to his brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew. When they all fell asleep, he stabbed them to death at around 3:30am on October 15.”

On October 15, police recovered the bodies of four people, including two children, with their throats slit, from Khalsi village in Kalaroa upazila of Satkhira district.

A case was filed by Moyna Khatun, mother-in-law of one of the victims, Shahinur Rahman, with Kolaroa police station on Thursday night.
