The distraught father, Samjat Haji, filed a murder case against his son, Ekramul Haque, for murdering Rahima Begum
A man has reportedly killed his mother over a trivial issue of shopping allowance ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr, at Tanore upazila.
The distraught father, Samjat Haji, filed a murder case against his son, Ekramul Haque, 28, for murdering Rahima Begum, 70, of Tanore upazila's Gaurangapur village on Monday.
Saiful Islam, officer-in-charge (investigations) of Tanore upazila's Mundumala Police Investigations Centre, said the murder stemmed from a case of shopping allowance, as Samjat's three sons wanted to go shopping for Eid Sunday afternoon.
When Rahima gave Tk3,000 to her youngest son Amirul, her elder sons Abdul and Ekramul demanded more money as they were older.
After the argument escalated, Ekramul, who had a wooden stick next to him, struck his mother behind her neck, after which she collapsed.
Their neighbours overheard the scuffle and entered the house, after which they rushed Rahima to Rajshahi Medical College, where the doctors pronounced her dead on arrival.
OC Saiful also said the neighbours brought her body back to her house, but police took it back on Sunday evening for autopsy.
Ekramul remains absconding, while the two other sons were released by the police soon after a short interrogation.
