A serial killer was caught in Natore for killing 8 women

A fisherman by profession, but he says he is more interested in killing women.

Naogaon-born Anwar  slowly became addicted to killing lonely women, with females of low and middle income backgrounds being his main targets.

After getting arrested by police from Natore’s Railway Station area on Saturday, Anwar alias Anar alias Babu, 45, confessed to killing eight women.

During his confessional statement, Anwar said, it gave him more satisfaction in killing women than fishing. 

Rajshahi Divisional Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police AKM Hafiz Akhter informed about the arrest in front of the media on Sunday.

DIG Hafiz said: “Anwar’s hometown is Raninagar’s Harishpur village in Naogaon.

"Anwar, after killing his targets by strangulation, robbed the victims' houses, and took jewellery and cash."

He has killed females of different ages, with some of his victims being 13, 32, 45, and 60 years of age, the DIG said.

"Anwar also raped some of his victims before killing them. He showed no remorse about the rape and murders," the DIG said during the press briefing, quoting Anwar.

Three of his accomplices - Rubel Ali, 22, Asadul, 36, and Anwar’s brother-in-law Shahin, 35 - were arrested earlier.

Liton Kha, a jewellery trader, was also arrested for buying the stolen valuables.

Anwar was kicked out from his village for excessive stealing. He and his accomplices disguised as fishermen went to different places in Natore, Naogaon, and Tangail, and killed the women, the DIG added.
