Thieves killed the cow owner, who was strangulated to death at his home in Daspurkur area on December 4, as he saw them while committing the theft, according to police.
Sajid Hossain, deputy commissioner of Boalia zone, on Monday at a briefing at Rajpara Police Station said, “Cattle lifters first fed Abdul Majid drugs, later, they strangled him in fear of unveiling their identity.”
Police have so far arrested eight people in this connection.
“Cattle lifters first fed Majid drugs, later, accused Milon and Zindar tried to strangulate Majid to death with hands but failed to do it. Then Accused Ariful Islam strangulated him to death with a muffler,” said Sajid.
On December 4, a group of cattle lifters strangled Majid before lifting his four cows in Daspurkur of Rajshahi early in the morning.
A case was filed with the police station in this connection.
