Woman killed, domestic help wounded in cityStaff Correspondent
Family alleges driver behind incident
A wealthy woman was stabbed to death allegedly by her driver at her house in the capital’s Gulshan area Tuesday morning.
Fahima Sultana, 40, one of the directors of International Medical College Hospital in Gazipur, was found dead in her bathroom with stab injuries while her domestic help, Bina, 12, with severe injuries was admitted to nearby United Hospital, the Gulshan police said.
The family said the couple was also involved with many reputed medical firms in the country.
They alleged that driver Mintu, who was employed a few months ago, had killed Fahima and injured Bina on the fourth floor of a six-storey building on Road 101 in the area and fled with a car.
The police, however, seized the car parked on Road 116 in the area at about 2:00pm.
Rafikul Islam, a security guard at the apartment, who was on duty from 6:00am to 2:00pm, said Fahima along with her four-year son Nafim Khan returned home at about 10:00am after dropping her two daughters —Maisha and Nafiza — at their school in the car driven by Minto.
Later, Minto hurriedly left the apartment at about 10:30am, said Rafikul, who wrote timing on the apartment register.
Fahima, wife of MA Mubin Khan, managing director of Ethics Advance Technology Limited at Karwanbazar, had been living in their own flat for the last few months.
The police said Mubin Khan had informed them of the incident at about 1:45pm when he returned home and found his wife dead.
Mubin, however, did not talk to the media till 7:00pm, so it was not clear how he came to know about the incident.
There is huge bloodstain in the master bedroom, adjacent bathroom, drawing-room and kitchen, said Criminal Investigation Department’s crime scene team.
The CID team also found a jacket and a jeans pant in front of the bedroom.
The CID team, however, could not confirm immediately how many people took part in the killing.
‘We will examine the evidences to confirm the matter,’ said CID’s assistant superintendent Jahangir Alam.
‘Mubin Khan is preparing an inventory to confirm what valuables or cash was taken away,’ said the Gulshan police officer-in-charge Rafikul Islam.
No case was filed till 10:00pm, the police said.
