Unidentified miscreants slaughtered an elderly woman at her residence in Chittagong’s Chaktai area on Sunday night.

According to the police, the deceased has been identified as Laila Begum, 67, wife of Anwar Chowdhury, a resident of Haji Abdus Sobhan Road.

Quoting locals, Mohammad Mohsin, officer-in-charge (OC) of Bakalia Police Station, told the Dhaka Tribune that Anwar Chowdhury found his wife dead at their residence, when he returned from the mosque after Esha prayers around 9pm.

Receiving information, police recovered the body and sent it to Chittagong Medical College Hospital morgue for an autopsy, added the OC.

A case has been lodged in this regard, and the police are now trying to identify the killers, the OC also said.

Initial findings suggest that people known to the victim committed the murder after failing to rob valuables from the house, said a senior official of Chittagong Metropolitan Police, seeking anonymity.
