Two brothers were stabbed to death while a youth was injured in an alleged attack by assailants in Jashore on Thursday night.
The deceased were identified as Ayub Hossain, 65, and Yunus Ali, 50, sons of Abdur Rahman of Teenage village in Chougachha upazila. Locals suspect the attack was the fallout of a property dispute, reports UNB.
Rony, 22, son of Ayub Hossain is currently being treated at Jashore General Hospital.
The assailants barged into Ayub Hossain’s house around 11:30pm on Thursday and stabbed him with sharp weapons, according to family members.
As Yunus and Rony tried to stop them, they were stabbed too. While Ayub dead on the spot, Yunus succumbed to his injuries on the way to hospital, said the family.
Nurul Kader, Narayanpur UP chairman, said, “It’s not clear yet why some armed men had attacked them. A property dispute could be the reason."
Saiful islam sobuj, officer-in-charge of Chougachha police station, said the bodies were sent for autopsy. "Efforts are on to nab the perpetrators of the crime."
