He said, “Though the marriage was completed several days ago, but Rafiqul’s daughter returned home. She was not willing to continue the relation with her husband. Mofazzal visited his father-in-law’s home 2 days ago. Locals left him (Mofazzal) at Union Parishad Complex in drunk state on Saturday (November 28). People of both groups were supposed to sit at the UP Complex on Sunday (November 29). So, Mofazzal was kept in the room for the night. But on-duty village police notice him hanging with the grill of window in the morning. Later, the matter was informed with the local police station.”
Deceased’s cousin Uzzal alleged that Mofazzal was hanged after being murdered. People of both groups sat in the UP Complex on Saturday (November 28) over the matter. Then, UP Chairman asked them to pay a total of Tk 1,30,000 for settlement. Otherwise, he will be handed over to police with drugs.
Mazharul Islam, Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Damkura Police Station of Rajshahi, said, “No injury mark was found visible on the body while making the inquest report. However, relatives accused him of being murdered. Filing a case was under process.”
He said, “It would clear whether it was a murder or suicide, after the autopsy. But the chairman went into hiding. Deceased’s father-in-law and other family members are also absconding. If any case is filed against someone, he/she would be arrested.”
