A JUMMA student named Harrison Tripura, 22, was killed in Dhaka after he went out with his two friends on the night of April 28.
Harrison Tripura’s another friend, Topesh Tripura, told chtnews.com, ‘Harrison was a student of political science at Mokbul Hossain University College and lived in Pahari Hostel at Mohammadpur. He had often slept over at his friends’ rented house at Kalyanpur.’
He added: ‘On April 26, at around 9:00 pm, his two friends, Gopal Chandra Roy, who studies at the same college, and Zahidul Islam Sabuj, a medical assistant internee at Dhaka Medical College, had visited Harrison at Dhaka Pahari hostel and then went out together.’
At midnight the police from Darus-Salam Thana recovered his senseless body from a wayside near a house bearing the number 3/D and a Baptist church in West Kalyanpur, not far from Kalyanpur bus stoppage.
Harrison’s family lives in Thana-para in Dighinala, Khagrachari district. His father, Dashrat Tripura, is a Sonali Bank officer.
According to them, Harrison had called his mother at around 9:30 pm to ask for money. But when they went to send the money via Bkash they found his mobile phone switched off.
It is therefore presumed that the murder must have taken place sometime between 9:30 pm and midnight.
His body bore marks that suggested that he might have been struck with heavy and hard objects.
His elder brother Cyclonic Tripura filed a case with Darus-Salam police station in this connection without naming anyone as an accused.---------------
