A man, known to be an addict, hacked his mother and father to death in their residence in Chougachha upazila of Jessore on Wednesday afternoon.
The deceased were identified as Mohiruddin, 65, and Ayna Begum, 55, from Ramkrishnapur.
Tarik Hassan Babul, member of ward 5 in Sukpukhuria union of Chaugachha upazila told our correspondent: "Hearing the news, I along with other locals rushed to the spot and saw two bloody bodies on the floor."
He also said: "Though the reason for the murder is unknown, locals say Milon was a drug-addict and often beat his parents for drug money. Five years ago, he severely injured a man named Khairul in a similar way and was imprisoned."
Chaugachha police station OC Rifat Khan Rajib said: "After an altercation with his parents, Milon stabbed his parents with a sharp weapon and fled the scene around 12pm.
"Hearing screams, neighbours came running but the couple died before they could be taken to the hospital. Locals later apprehended Milon near Rajapur Borobari area at around 1pm and handed him over to the police."
The bodies were sent to Jessore General Hospital morgue for autopsy. A case was filed at the police station in this regard, the OC added.
