Two people, including a local Jubo League leader, have been detained for their suspected involvement in the murder of a woman and her daughter in Feni’s Fulgazi upazila.
The detainees are Saidul Islam Roni, 32, organising secretary of Fulgazi upazila Jubo League, and Kader Mia, 45, of East Bashikpur village.
A woman and her daughter were murdered allegedly by some miscreants at East Bashikpur village in Phulgazi upazila on Wednesday night.
The deceased are Fatema Sathi, and her five-year-old daughter Ishma.
Fulgazi police station Officer-in-Charge Jasim Uddin told the Dhaka Tribune that the detainees are the friends of Sathi’s ex-husband Shahadat Hossain.
He said they were detained on Wednesday night for interrogation over the murder.
Sathi’s father Monir Ahmed claimed that Sathi’s ex-husband Shahadat was responsible for the murder.
Sathi got divorced with her husband two months ago.
According to police, Shahadat is accused in 10 cases filed on various charges including abduction and extortion.
