RAB: Tongi double murder over drug feud
Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested five people over their suspected involvement in last year’s murders of two men in Tongi. They are – alleged mastermind behind the killings Humayun Kabir, 24, also the prime accused in the murder case, Jewel Shikdar, 19, Billal Hossain, 18, Rabiul Islam Robu, 18, and Mohammad Jibon, 29. RAB's Legal and Media Wing Director Commander Mufti Mahmud Khan yesterday said Humayun has admitted to killing Akhtar Hossain, 35, and Asibur Rahman alias Mim, 27, in December with the help from the other four arrestees. Briefing the reporters at the force’s Media Centre in Karwan Bazar, Dhaka, Mufti said the killings happened following a feud over establishing dominance in the local drug trade. He also said Humayun had earlier tried to kill both Akhtar and Mim several times. A RAB 1 team arrested the five from Tongi with two foreign-made pistols, some local weapons and narcotics on Wednesday night. Mufti Mahmud said that Humayun has been leading a notorious drug ring in Tongi and dominating the trade in the area for the past five years. However, cousins Akhtar and Mim, after returning home from Dubai and Italy, respectively, had started another drug trading syndicate in the locality, which as expected led to a competition and rivalry with Humayun’s group. With the feud growing over time, Humayun and his associates had tried to take out the competition for good on different occasions but failed, said RAB official Mufti. Later, on December 12, 2017, Akhtar and Mim were murdered by Humayun, Jewel, Billal, Rabiul, Jibon, Rahim, Sagar, Asif, Sajjad, Pavel and several others. Even though a case was filed with the police over the murders, RAB started a shadow investigation later which led to the arrest of the five, said Mufti. Humayun and Billal were also accused in a murder case, and several drug and mugging cases, he added.
