A court on Monday sentenced a man to life imprisonment for killing his father in 2017 at Pithabhog village in Rupsha Upazila in Khulna. The court also fined the convict Tk 10000, in default, he will serve two months more in jail. 

Khulna Additional District and Sessions Judge-2 Tasnim Jahura pronounced the verdict. 

After the verdict, the accused was taken from the court to jail. The convict is Proshanto Biswas, son of Prafulla Biswas, of the area.

On January 17, 2017, Proshanto slaughtered his father Prafulla over a family feud. Later, Sushant Biswas, the youngest son of the deceased, lodged a complaint against his elder brother Proshanto.

Based on his complaint, a case was filed at Rupsha Police Station against the accused. 

However, Proshanto fled to India after the killing. After three months, he returned home and surrendered to police and gave a confessional statement under section 164.

The investigation officer in the case PBI Inspector AKM Mahfuzul Haque submitted a charge sheet against Prashanto on October 12, 2017.
