A murder case accused in Narayanganj on Monday confessed that he had killed his co-worker over a property feud.
The accused Musa Mia said he had stabbed and choked Liton Miah to death seven months ago.
Musa, a painter at the dockyard, confessed to the killing to Narayanganj Senior Judicial Magistrate Mahmudul Mohsin.
Confirming the confessional statement, sub-inspector of Rupganj Police Station, Nazim Uddin said, "Liton Miah conflicted with his father-in-law regarding four plots of lands in Chanpara Rehabilitation Centre. Liton's father-in-law hired Musa to kill Liton in exchange for money."
