Around 4am on Wednesday, police arrested the men from their respective homes in Keshabpur, said Satkhira Superintendent of Police (SP) Sazzadur Rahman in a press briefing at his office on Wednesday.

Of them, the victim’s neighbour, Naimul, confessed to the court that he planned to hijack Shahin’s rickshaw-van by assaulting him.

The court sent the suspects to jail after recording Naimul’s statement.
