A man was killed when an unidentified assailant stabbed him to death in Dhaka’s Malibagh area on Monday.

The deceased is identified as Md Milon, 35. He was a resident of Gudaraghat in Mirpur. 

Police said the victim was a ridesharing company ‘Pathao’ driver. Police suspect the attacker drove away with the victim’s motorbike after the stabbing incident.

Confirming the matter, Shahjahanpur police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Atikur Rahman said a case has been filed in connection with the murder.  

He said police rushed to the spot after the deadly incident was reported on Monday around 2:30am. Bleeding profusely, Milon with a deep slash to his throat, was taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital. 

In an effort to stop the bleeding and repair soft neck tissue, on-duty medical officers put in seven stitches to his neck. 

Milon was later shifted to Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College & Hospital upon the doctor’s advice. 

35-year-old Milon succumbed to his injuries at around 5:00am while undergoing emergency treatment. 

Police SI Atikur said the last time Milon spoke was to his friend around 2am on Monday. During their phone conversation, Milon told his friend he was then in front of the CID office. 

SI Atikur said, according to the family, Milon had been a partner-driver with ridesharing company Pathao. 

The last time he served passengers using ride-sharing app Pathao was on August 7. Police and family members said that the murder suspect might have been a passenger, apparently sharing a ride in the early hours of Monday.

The motorcycle was missing after the incident. 

“We suspect the passenger stabbed Milon’s throat on the right side with a sharp weapon to steal the motorbike and he escaped with it,” the police added. 

Police said efforts are underway to investigate the murder. Police also said they have checked CCTV cameras on the Mouchak-Malibagh flyover.
