Detectives have arrested a car driver on charges of killing his employer car owner and looting money and gold ornaments at Badda in the capital.
Briefing reporters on Wednesday, Dhaka Metropolitan Police additional commissioner for the Detective Branch AKM Hafiz Akhter said that they arrested the driver, Hriday Bepari, at Badda on Tuesday.
Hriday allegedly killed his employer, Seven Circle Bangladesh Limited deputy manager Afroza Sultana, for looting money and gold ornaments Sunday evening, said the official.
The officer said that Hridoy, who was addicted to online gambling, had lost most of his salary in gambling.
As he could not afford to run his family, he planned and killed Afroza to loot her money and gold ornaments, said Hafiz.
Hridoy, who has a wife and three children, also borrowed money from Afroza recently for running the family, but yet he could not pay house rents for the last three months, said the DB officials.
He also attempted to kill Afroza earlier twice, but failed, Hafiz said.
Hridoy attacked Afroza with a glass from behind and killed her by sliting her throat Sunday evening, said police.
Afroza’s husband Ayan Fahad was in his office during the incident.
After the murder, Hridoy took away money and gold ornaments and fled.
Hridoy thought that there would be a huge amount of money and ornaments in the house, there were less than what he expected, said DB officials.
