Update : 09 Apr 2014, 08:19 PM

Police arrested a doctor yesterday for allegedly killing textiles engineer Sadbin Hossain in the capital's Kalabagan on Tuesday.

Soon after arresting Dr Jahangir Nazim, Kalabagan police produced him at the judge court and sought a seven-day remand for him, but the court approved three days for interrogation.

Police said in primary interrogation Nazim had confessed to having threatened Sadbin for not accepting his relationship with Sadbin’s cousin.

Sources said Sadbin’s cousin Dr Sadia Afrin had been a colleague of Nazim at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital in 2011. They developed a good friendship, but it broke after Nazim proposed her. Nazim allegedly kept “disturbing” Sadia.

Sadia consulted her family about the matter, which made Nazim more desperate. He kept following her everywhere and calling her on her mobile phone.

The family filed three cases with Dhanmondi police station and several GDs with Kolabagan police station against Nazim. Meanwhile, Sadia got married, but Nazim would not stop.

On Monday, Nazim went to Sadia’s Dhanmondi residence with some associates and started hurling abuse. Nazim threatened with killing if Sadia had not accepted his proposal.

When police arrived at the scene along with Sadbin and a few relatives Nazim left. Sadbin, son of Dhaka district Awami League Publicity Secretary Kazi Shawkat Hossain, later went to have tea behind the LabAid Hospital. Criminals shot him dead on his way back home from Sadia’s house around 12.45am on Tuesday.
