Pubali Bank official admits killing wife, son

Update : 06 Nov 2014, 09:35 PM

The bank official suspected of killing his wife and son has admitted his involvement in the murders, police said.

Amanullah, who works at Pubali Bank, told police his conjugal life had lately turned sour, causing him to develop intimate relationship with another woman.

“He decided to get rid of his wife and killed his seven-year-old son Sabbid to ensure that his extramarital relationship remains concealed. We will produce him before court and seek remand,” said Salauddin Ahmed, officer-in-charge of Mirpur police station, yesterday.

The 45-year-old was arrested on Wednesday for the murder of his wife Irin Akter Arzu, 35, and Sabbid in the capital’s Mirpur. The couple’s other son Tanvir is less than a year old.

Amanullah told police that he strangled Irin and Sabbid at his residence in Moddho Paikpara following an altercation with her. He also said he was planning to marry the woman he was involved with. Irin’s uncle Yunus Hawladar filed a case against Amanullah. Police also interrogated Sanjida Yasmin, who Yunus claimed had illicit relationship with the accused.

After strangling his wife and son, Amanullah came out of the house and started screaming that someone had murdered the two. Neighbours came in and found Irin and Sabbid lying on a bed. They were declared dead after being taken to separate hospitals.

Irin’s elder sister Nigar Sultana Akhi said: “My sibling told me that Amanullah had been threatening to kill her.

“Irin and Sanjida shared a room when Irin was a graduate student at Eden Mohila College. Interestingly, Irin was introduced to Amanullah by Sanjida,” she added.

Aman later deserted Sanjida as he was charmed by the beauty of Irin. But after marrying Irin, Aman - who frequently beat up his wife - reestablished contact with Sanjida, setting off rows with his wife.
