A paternal uncle and a cousin of five-year-old child Tuhin Hasan, who was brutally murdered at Kezaura village in Dirai upazila, reportedly confessed before a court on Tuesday to their involvement in the murder.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Shyam Kanta Sinha recorded the confessional statements of victim’s uncle Nasir Mia and cousin Shahriar, said Mizanur Rahman, superintendent of police of the district, while speaking at a press briefing at his office in the evening.
He said the family brutally murdered the minor boy only to implicate their rivals in the case.
Meanwhile, the same court placed three people, including Tuhin’s father Abdul Basir, on a three-day remand in connection with the murder when police produced them before it seeking a five-day remand, said KM Nazrul Islam, officer-in-charge of Dirai Police Station.
The two others who were remanded are uncle Abdur Musabir and neighbour Jamshed Ali.
Monira Begum, mother of Tuhin, filed a case against 10 people on Tuesday in connection with the murder.
The body of the minor boy was found hanged from a tree on Monday morning with his ears, genital parts and throat severed. Two knives used in the murder were also found stuck in his abdomen.unb
