Hostage son rescued, father arrested
The members of law enforcing agencies have rescued a minor boy who was confined at a house in the city’s Banglamotor area by his father and recovered the body of his three-year-old brother on Wednesday afternoon.
They also detained Akhtaruzzaman Kajol, who killed Shafat, one of his sons, and held another son hostage, from the spot.
Uzzal, brother of Akhtaruzzaman Kajol, said on information a team of police, RAB and fire services cordoned off the house in the area in the morning and at one stage they managed to enter into the house and rescued his nephew from the hostage situation.
They also recovered his nephew Shafat who was reportedly killed by his drug-addict brother, he said.
Kajol’s wife left him as he is a drug addict. But, their two sons lived with Kajol, said Shahbagh Police Station Officer-in-Charge Abul Hasan.
During the drive, the lawmen found Kajol carrying a sharp weapon in front of the house, he added.
