On December 30, locals discovered Habibullah's body in the neighboring village
A man killed his son to cover up his extramarital affair with his daughter in law in Ghatail upazila of Tangail.
The deceased was Habibullah, 25, from Mulbari village of Songrampur union in Ghatail.
On December 30, locals discovered Habibullah's body in the neighboring village of Boga and informed the police.
Upon discovery of the body, his father Shwapan filed a case with Ghatail police station the same day, against the then unknown killers.
However, on January 4, police arrested the deceased's wife, Sobura Begum, 23, after primary investigation.
On January 6, the father, Abu Zafar Shwapan, 52, was arrested based on Sobura's statement before the Tangail Chief Judicial Magistrate's court on January 5.
Ghatail police station SI Shaheen Miah confirmed the matter and said: "The illegitimate affair between the father in law and the daughter in law was the reason for Habibullah's murder."
According to Sobura's statement, she and her father in law began their extramarital affair soon after her marriage to Habibullah eight months ago. When Habibullah caught them red handed and asked them to stop, Shwapan and Sobura conspired together to kill Habibullah to continue their relationship.
Apparently, on December 26, Shwapan hired some local goons to kill his son and handed over his son to them.
Police are still trying to arrest the people hired by the father Shwapan to kill his son Habibullah, said SI Shaheen.
