A young man was stabbed to death while sleeping at Paherdanga village of Terokhada upazila in Khulna on early Wednesday.
The youth was identified as Naeem Sheikh, 25, son of Piru Sheikh, 52, of the village.
Locals said some unknown people entered Naem’s room at midnight and started stabbing him with sharp weapons. They also knifed Naem’s father – leaving him critically injured – while he rushed to the room after hearing his son’s scream.
The incident may take place over enmity with their relatives, said the locals.
Confirming the incident, acting Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Terokhada Police Station Salekuzzaman said that Naem’s body was recovered on Wednesday morning and sent to the Khulna Medical College Hospital for autopsy.
