Police arrested a man this afternoon hours after a case was filed against him on charges of killing his elder brother over a family feud in Gazaria upazila of Munshiganj last night.
Hridoy Sarkar (30) was arrested from Sujatpur Islambagh area of Matlab upazila in Chandpur around 4:30pm, said Md Rais Uddin, officer-in-charge (OC) of Gazaria Police Station in Munshiganj.
During primary interrogation, Hridoy confessed to killing his elder brother Masum Sarker (35), the OC told our Munshiganj correspondent.
