A 22-year-old drug addict has slashed his mother to death in Tangail’s Modhupur after she refused to give him money to feed his habit, police say.
Their neighbour Akbar Ali, 55, who tried to save Minara Begum, 50, from her son Miraz, was also attacked and killed by the drug addict.
Modhupur police OC Shafiqul Islam said Miraz attacked his mother with a knife on Monday morning after she refused to give him money.
“Their neighbour Akbar rushed to save Minara but he too was attacked by Miraz,” the OC told the Dhaka Tribune. “Both of them died on the spot.”
Locals apprehended Miraz and handed him over to police.
