The incident took place in Ashulia, Dhaka on Friday

A day labourer has been stabbed to death over a gambling debt of Tk100 in Ashulia, Dhaka.

The incident took place in Ashulia’s Palashbari area on Friday evening.

The deceased was identified as Johirul Islam, 28. The suspect has been identified as Rezaul, 18.

Speaking to the Dhaka Tribune, Johirul’s father Abdul Malek said Johirul lived with his family in a rented house in Palashbari.

“On Wednesday, my son played a game of Ludo with Rezaul, where they placed a bet of Tk100. My son lost to Rezaul and promised to pay him the next day, but he could not. Rezaul got angry and attacked my son on Friday evening." 

Locals rushed a critically injured Johirul to Enam Medical College and Hospital in Savar where he succumbed to his injuries a day later, on Saturday evening.

Malek said he had offered to pay off his son’s gambling debt. “Despite that, my son was killed,” the grieving father said.

He further alleged that their landlord, Siddique, had put pressure on Johirul and his family to sort out the dispute with Rezaul.

Confirming the matter, Ashulia police station OC Rezaul Haque Dipu said: “We are preparing to send the body to Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital for an autopsy. A case will be filed in this regard.”
