A court in Dinajpur on Saturday placed Nabirul Islam and Santu Chandra on a seven-day remand in connection with the attack on Ghoraghat UNO of Dinajpur Wahida Khanam.
Wahida Khanam came under criminal attack at her official residence at the dead of the night for allegedly resisting an attempted robbery.
Three of the five arrestees confessed to having carried out the attack and explained the reasons for the same.
Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) picked them from various spots of Ghoraghat Upazila under Dinajpur on suspicion and quizzed them.
During interrogation, the trio said they entered the UNO’s house in a bid to commit burglary and hit her in the face of resistance.
Those who gave confessional statements are Asadul Islam, son of Amzad Hossain at Sagarpur under Ghoraghat Upazila, Santu Kumar Biswas, son of Khoka Chandra Biswas, and Md Nabirul Islam, son of Faraz Uddin of Biswanathpur. Santu and Asadul are identified as painters.
