Policeman Ariful on 2-day reman for killing sister-in-law
A local court has granted two-day remand to policeman Ariful Islam in a murder case filed over killing a brick kiln worker Abid Hasan Babu in Satkhira.
Judge Yasmin Nahar of Amli Court-2 passed the verdict on Tuesday afternoon.
Police member Ariful Islam is the son of Arshad Ali Moral of Bandakati village in Kaliganj upazila of Satkhira. He was working as a constable in Hazrahati police camp of Shalikha police station in Magura.
Court Inspector Amal Kumar Roy said Ariful Islam was granted two-day remand after he was produced before the court with seven days remand prayers.
On March 3, 2020, Abid Hossain Babu, son of Rahim Mollah of the neighboring Nilkanthpur village, married to Sabina, mother of two, and sister of Ariful Islam. After marriage, Babu lived in his father-in-law's house. Sabina recently fell in love with her ex-husband Farooq's cousin Lavlu. Then Sabina's relationship with Babu deteriorated.
Family members, including Sabina and her brother Ariful Islam, were pressuring Babu to divorce her with a letter with Tk 1.5 lakh. On November 3, Babu's body was found hanging on a lemon tree near his pond. It is thought that Sabina's brother, policeman Ariful, came home on October 28 on a six-day leave and kill his sister-in-law.
Meanwhile, the victim's mother Hosne Ara Khatun filed a murder case against 10 people including Sabina and Ariful Islam on the night of November 3. Police arrested Sabina after filing the case. Sabina gave confesional statement before the court on November 4. In the deposition, Sabina mentioned the names of those involved, including policeman Ariful. Police then arrested Ariful from his workplace.
