Two knives were found thrust into the belly of the child bearing names of two local men on the handles.
Father of the deceased said: “I don’t know who took my son away at night and why killed him so mercilessly. I’m just a farmer and don’t have such enmity with anyone.”
Tuhin’s mother-Monira Begum-- filed a case against some unidentified men with Derai Police Station on the night of October 14. Five persons including Tuhin’s father were arrested.
Police believe Tuhin’s family members are involved in the murder.
