Police arrested the accused Jahangir from Gochakhali village of Gulishakhali union of Amtali upazila on Saturday noon.

Earlier on Friday, Zidani’s mother Seema Begum filed a murder case at Amtali Police Station against the unidentified accused. 

At that time, Jahangir Sikder was taken to the police station for preliminary questioning and he admitted to killing the girl.

It is learned that Jahangir Sikder and Seema Begum have two daughter Shohagi(9) and Jannati (3). Their third daughter Zidani was born on December 8, 2019.

His wife Seema Begum and his mother-in-law Parul Begum were doing household chores outside the house at the time. The mother of the child Seema and grandmother Parul Begum entered the house around 11 pm and shouted not to see Zidani and his father Jahangir. 

Neighbors and others in the house rushed to them. At around 11am, the body of the deceased was recovered, along with her bedsheets from the pool behind the house.

Upon receiving the news, police at Amtali police recovered the body of the child at around 3pm and sent it to the morgue of Barguna General Hospital for autopsy.
