A man allegedly hacked his three minor daughters to death at Badarkhali Chowdhurypara in Chakaria upazila early Friday.
The deceased were identified as Ayesha Siddiqua, 11, Shiru Jannat Sheuli, 9 and Tahura Jannat, 2.
Prabash Chandra Dhar, officer-in-charge of Chakaria Police Station, said wife of Abdul Goni, a day labourer and father of four children, had locked into an altercation with his wife on Thursday.
As a sequel to the altercation, Goni’s wife along with her three daughters and a son went to her parent’s house on Thursday evening.
Later, Goni went to his in-law’s house in the night and asked his wife to return home with the children. As she refused to go back, Goni returned home with his three daughters.
He might have slaughtered his three daughters when they were asleep in the dead of night and went into hiding, said the OC.
On information, police rushed in and recovered the bodies. – UNB
