Police arrested three of victim’s step brothers following the incident
A man allegedly slit the throat of his step brother over a land dispute in the Pahartali police station area of Chittagong.
The deceased was identified as Md Kaysar, 45, son of late Jamir Uddin.
The crime occurred on Wednesday night. Around 11pm, police said, Kaysar’s step brother Sajjad Hossain and his accomplices attacked the victim and slit his throat with a sharp object.
Kaysar was immediately rushed to Chittagong Medical College Hospital by his family members, where he succumbed to his injuries around midnight.
The deceased’s family members told cops that Sajjad belonged to a local anti-social group.
Earlier on March 27, Kaysar’s brother Mainuddin Ujjol was also stabbed by Sajjad, his family alleged.
Pahartali police station’s Officer-in-Charge Imam Hossain said on Friday, "The two families are in a dispute over a piece of ancestral land. We had earlier tried to resolve the dispute by calling both the parties to the police station."
"We have arrested the three step brothers of Kaysar and sent his body for an autopsy," he added.
