A police informant has been hacked to death by assailants in Tongi of Gazipur district.
The deceased has been identified as Kutub Uddin, 32, son of Habibur Rahman of Dhaka’s Nawabganj area.
He stayed at a rented house in Amtali area in Tongi with his wife Nasima Begum.
Kutub’s paternal uncle Abdul Gofur said, “Kutub went out of the house after receiving a call over the phone around 5:30am Tuesday. The locals later informed us that a group of criminals hacked Kutub at T&T Bazar and left him there.”
He said Kutub was taken to Tongi Hospital. Later he was shifted to Pongu Hospital in Dhaka where the duty doctor declared him dead.
Tongi OC Firoz Talukdar said, “Kutub worked as a source for Tongi police. We have visited the spot; the culprits will soon be arrested.
“Family members have accused Anwar Hossain and Jamal Uddin for the murder. They used to work as police sources in the past.”
