Quoting Samiul and the victim, Manda Police Station Officer-in-Charge Mozaffar Hossain said the deceased woman's younger daughter is studying at Class XI at a local college. She had an affair with Samiul, but their relation has not been good of late.
The police official said, Samiul with a knife on Monday night went to the girl's house in a bid to kill her. He climbed to the roof of the house and entered the house from a door on the roof.
As he knocked the door, the girl opened it. They had an altercation, which woke her mother up. Samiul then stabbed the woman indiscriminately. As she lost her sense, Samiul slaughtered her. Later, he allegedly raped the girl threatening her with a knife, said the police officer.
