The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) has arrested two men for a murder that was committed more than two years ago in Dhaka.

Md Jashim Uddin, 36, and Md Kabir, 39, stabbed a man for not offering them “salam", the Muslim greeting, in Beribadh area of Dhaka’s Mohammadpur on the night of February 24, 2019, according to a press statement issued by the PBI on Friday. 

The law enforcement agency arrested the duo, separately, on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

The duo brutally stabbed the victim, Ershad, 30, who succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) the very next day.

Ershad’s mother Laili Begum filed a case with Mohammadpur police station the same day her son died.
