Police arrested the killer Wahiduzzaman, imam of a mosque of Shibchar area in Madaripur, from Shibchar on charge of his involvement with the slaughtering of Didarul Islam, Imam of Mollikerpara Jame mosque under Sonargaon upazila.
The deceased Didarul Islam is the son of Aftab Farazi of Khulna Terokhada village.
SI Abul Kalam Azad of Sonargaon thana conducted drive in Madaripur area through Information Technology and arrested him six days after the incident.
Wahiduzzaman has since given a confessional statement saying that he has killed his friend Didarul Islam, Imam of Mollikerpara Jame mosque.
Police sources said that Wahiduzzaman had taken a loan from Didarul Islam, that the latter was asking to be repaid for long.
On the night of August 21, Wahiduzzaman came to his friend Didarul Islam’s place bringing two bottles of coke – one of them mixed with sedatives. Wahid would pour Didar a glass from the one mixed with sedatives, and himself drink from the other bottle.
Within few minutes after drinking the cold drink, Didarul fell asleep. Wahiduzzaman then slaughtered Didarul with a knife used for offering ‘korbani’. Later, he fled the scene after throwing the blood-stained lungi and two coke bottles in a ditch by the side of the mosque.
