Police arrived at the building on Monday night and found Nur with fatal stab injuries

A gang of culprits have stabbed and strangled a sadar upazila sub-registrar to death in his own home of Kushtia. 

The deceased, Nur Mohammad Shah, 55, from Kurigram, was killed in his rented apartment near Babor Ali Gate, around 11pm on Monday. 

Police arrived at the building acting on a tip-off from the landlord, Hanif Ali, and found Nur bound with a towel, on the kitchen floor, with fatal stab injuries.

He was taken to Kushtia General Hospital, where the on-duty doctor declared him dead on arrival.

Sadar police outpost in-charge Santu Biswas confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune. Kushtia Superintendent of Police (SP) SM Tanvir Arafat visited the crime scene.

According to locals, Nur lived alone, on the third floor of the building, due to his professional obligations. The landlord and other tenants of the house came out into the stairways after hearing the sound of some people running down the stairs.

They went to the victim's home to investigate, and found a critically injured Nur lying of the floor.

Responding to query, Kushtia General Hospital on-duty doctor Rajibul Hasan said: "Nur Mohammad died before he was brought to the hospital. Both his hands bear signs of stabbing by a sharp weapon."

Kushtia Model police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Nasir Uddin said: "We found some evidence upon inspecting the crime scene. The investigation continues. We are also examining the CCTV camera footage for more evidence.

“I believe we will soon be able to identify the criminals and bring them under the law. However, the reason for the murder is yet to be determined.”

The OC, quoting an anonymous source, said there are allegations that Nur Mohammad was involved in several irregularities at his workplace, the Kushtia Sadar Registry office, including taking thousands of Taka in bribes.

According to that source, registry officials take bribes openly, and distribute the ill-gotten gains among themselves. These reprehensible practices could be a motive behind Nur’s murder.

Police have launched an investigation into the matter.
