A man was hacked to death allegedly by his daughter’s boyfriend in broad daylight during her wedding ceremony in the capital on Thursday.
The deceased has been identified as Dula Mia alias Tula, 50, a resident at Dilu road in Dhaka.
The Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Hatirjheel Police Station, Abdur Rashid, confirmed the matter to The Business Standard.
“A young man named Sajib suddenly entered the house while the wedding ceremony was taking place. He stabbed Tula Mia and his wife mercilessly before running away,” said the OC. He added that Sajib had a relationship with the victims’ daughter.
The two victims were rushed to the nearby Insaf Baraq Hospital where the duty doctor Siddiqur Rahman declared the father dead.
Tula’s wife was referred to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for better treatment because her condition was deteriorating.
