A woman, Tania Akter, was living at a flat on the first floor of a building at Begunbari Master Goli in Dhaka’s Sabujbagh area with her 3-year-old daughter and 10-month old son.

Her husband Maidul Islam was in Faridpur, where he works as a technician at Faridpur Medical College Hospital.

Tania was hacked to death on Saturday evening. The killer switched the stoves on before leaving, hoping that the house would catch fire, reports bdnews24.com.

Later, the 3-year-old minor girl informed their neighbours about the killing of her mother as the door of their flat was open after the murder.
