He was arrested on Saturday

Police in Sylhet said on Sunday that they have arrested a man over the gruesome killings of his pregnant wife and two children in Sylhet.

On Wednesday, police recovered the bodies of 30-year Alema Begum, her son Mizan Ahmed, 10, and daughter Tanisha Akter, 3, with their throats slit at Gowainghat Upazila’s Binnakandi village.

The father, Hifzur Rahman, 35, was admitted to Sylhet Osmani Medical College Hospital with severe wounds and was shown arrested on Saturday. He was put on a five-remand on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, Sylhet’s Superintendent of Police (SP) Mohammad Farid Uddin told reporters that Hifzur was formally arrested on Saturday based on the information gathered.

Investigators have concluded that no one entered the house on the night of the incident as there was no sign of a break-in, according to SP Farid Uddin.

“Hifzur called three people on the morning of the incident. He told two of them that he was sick and had to be taken to hospital. Moreover, the crime scene photos show Hifzur lying over his wife and children, but there was soil on his feet, which indicates he had been walking around for a while,” said the Sylhet district police chief.

Initial reports from the doctors, who performed the autopsy, said Alema Begum was also five months pregnant, added SP Farid Uddin.
