Mother, son found dead in Jamalpur home

Police have recovered the bodies of a woman and her son, presumed murdered, from a home in Jamalpur’s Madarganj.

The dead have been identified as Moslema Akhter Shikha, 32, wife of log trader Harun-ur-Rashid, and their five-year-old son.

Both bodies were found with slash wounds on their necks from their home in Madarganj’s Chargopalpur village on Wednesday, said Madarganj Police OC Rafiqul Islam.

Police, however, arrested Harun-or-Rashid Polash, husband of the woman, from the scene.

Gunaritola Union Parishad member Akber Ali said Harun locked into an altercation with Shikha at their house in Gopalpur village in at early hours over family feud.

But, Police could not immediately provide any details about the possible assailants.

The bodies have been sent to Jamalpur General Hospital’s morgue for autopsy.
