The murder, which drew condemnation from people across Bangladesh on social media, took place in the early hours in Kejaura village under the upazila’s Rajanagar union.

During primary interrogation, Tuhin's father Basir, and uncle Nasir confessed to the murder. Police also said Basir and Nasir committed the murder to frame rivals and establish local dominance.
