SI, wife found dead in city’s Roopnagar


Dhaka: Bullet-ridden bodies of a sub-inspector of police and his second wife have been found at their flat at Roopnagar Residential Area in the city’s Mirpur.

The slain sub-inspector was identified as Abdus Sattar. He was posted at the city’s Badda Police Station. His wife was identified as 22-year-old Shoma Akhter Shampa.

Abdus Sattar married his first wife’s maternal cousin Shoma about a year ago. He has left two sons–one is a 10-year-old boy and the other three and a half-year-old boy–with his first wife.

The 35-year-old Abdus Sattar and his second wife Shoma were found bullet-ridden at their flat on Saturday evening, said Roopnagar Police Station officer-in-charge Syed Shahidul Huque.

He also said SI Abdus Sattar used to live with his second wife at the 5th floor of the House No. 32 at Road No. 22 in Roopnagar Residential Area. Their bullet-ridden bodies were recovered on Saturday evening from the flat. They were found bullet-ridden on their heads. Instantly, they were taken to a local clinic.

Badda Police Station OC MA Jalil said SI Abdus Sattar might have committed suicide shooting on his head after killing his second wife at their Roopnagar flat sometime on Saturday evening due to ‘conjugal problems.’

Replying to question, he said SI Sattar was on leave on Saturday.

Meanwhile, our DMCH correspondent has reported that SI Abdus Sattar and his wife were brought at the emergency deartment of the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) at about 8:30pm where doctors declared them dead.

Their bodies have been kept at the DMCH morgue for postmortem. Details would be known after the postmortem, reported our correspondent, quoting a forensic expert of the hospital.
