A 12-year old child has been hacked to death in an attack in Dhaka's Kadamtoli that also left three others including her mother and sister injured.
The gruesome murder took place at the family's home on the first floor of a building near Al Madina Mosque at Paterbagh around 8pm on Tuesday, witnesses and police said.
Police or the members of the family could not throw light on the attackers or the motive behind the crime.
It was also not immediately clear if anything was missing from the house.
The girl was identified as Soheli Aktar, a sixth-grader at the AK High School and College.
Kadamtoli Police Station OC Kazi Wazed Ali said she died on the spot.
He said the injured, her mother Sahida Mridha Dolly, 35, sister 'Sarah', 7, and neighbour Jalal Ahmed, 35, were admitted to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) with sharp-weapon wounds.
Another neighbour, named 'Faruk', toldthe news agency that Soheli's father 'Selim', who returned to Bangladesh from Italy on Oct 18, was out of the house at the time of the attack.
"Soheli died when several miscreants stormed their flat and started randomly hacking everyone."
He said the attackers had fled, as residents of the building, alerted by their cries for help, rushed there and found the three injured in pools of blood.
Then they were taken to the hospital, Faruk added.
DMCH police outpost Inspector Mozammel Haque said, "Dolly and Jalal have been struck on their heads. There were sharp weapon wounds on Soheli's sister Sarah's body."    ?
