Sacked PA killed businessman Tobarak at his home: Police

Dhaka, Dec 30 – A former employee of Shah Md Tobarak Hossain hired killers and murdered him for exacting revenge and robbing him, the Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) said Sunday.DB said the motive was unearthed after interrogating five men who were directly involved in the incident.
The suspects are — Md Gulam Rabbi, Babul Prodhan alias Babu, Md Sohel Prodhan, Md Emon Hossain alias Hasan and Md Alamin Khandker alias Rihan.
Tobarak, 72, was killed at his flat in the city’s Tejgaon Industrial Area last week. He lived with two personal assistants – Shahin and Shihab.
Briefing reporters at DMP media centre, Additional Commissioner (DB) Abdul Baten said DB (West Division) arrested the five men during raids across the country on Saturday.
During preliminary interrogation, DB learned that Tobarak had several shops at Mama Plaza of Mohakhali. Shahin and Shihab used to look after his business for several years. Shahin wanted to exact revenge on Tobarak after being sacked by his employer on specific charges.
Shahin got in touch with Sohel and told him that Tobarak carried money for business purposes and kept it at his flat. “So they decided to loot the money,” Additional Commissioner Baten said. – UNB
