Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) have arrested a man for killing a young woman in Narsingdi.
RAB-11 Captain Lt Col Kazi Shamsher Uddin said this at a press briefing in Narsingdi Press Club this noon.
Police recovered the body of Sabina Aktar, 21, from a banana field in Kazirchar village of Shibpur upazila on Saturday, two days after she went missing.
A special team of RAB located and arrested the prime suspect, Saiful Islam, 28, son of Hanif Fakir of Dulalpur village, from the upazila’s College Gate area last night.
During an investigation into the woman's suspicious death, RAB interrogated Saiful, who allegedly confessed to committing the crime and disclosed the details.
According to his confession, Saiful tried to rape her on Thursday. But, as she started screaming, Saiful suffocated her with his shirt and killed her, Rab said.
