A Narayanganj court on Wednesday granted a three-day remand to the accused held over the murder of a woman and her pregnant daughter in Narayanganj’s Nitaiganj.
Earlier on the same day, Ramprasad Chakraborty filed a murder case at Sadar Police Station against Al Jobayer, 26, resident of Paikpara, for murdering his wife Ruma Chakraborty and their daughter.
Narayanganj Police Inspector Asaduzzaman said that Jobayer was produced before the court on Wednesday afternoon with a 10-day remand prayer, but the court granted a three-day remand.
The inspector said the accused youth confessed that he killed the two women to rob money and gold from their house at Dalpatti in Nitaiganj on Tuesday afternoon.
Additional Superintendent of Police (Crime) Amir Khasru said, "We have interrogated Jobayer extensively. He said that he needed money to run his own business and that’s why he targeted the biggest house in Nitaiganj.”
Two gold necklaces and earrings were recovered from the accused Jobayer's bag which he took away from the house.
Jobayer claimed that he passed HSC in 2013 and got admission in Computer Science and Engineering department at a private university in Dhaka, but due to financial crisis he couldn’t complete his studies, police sources said.
