A teenage boy was stabbed to death in Gopalganj’s Tungipara on Tuesday night. 


The deceased is 14-year-old Rishad Sheikh, from Sardarpara village in Patgathi. 


Muhammad Abul Monsur, OC of Tungipara Police Station, said they have detained 19-year-old Aziz, a resident of the same village, in connection with the killing.


Both Rishad and Aziz worked at the ‘Maer Doa Chotpoti and Fuchka House’ food stand.


The incident occurred near the Mandulbari Puja venue around 9:30 pm when Rishad and Aziz got into an argument over attracting customers to the ‘Maer Doa’ stall.


“At one point, Aziz stabbed his co-worker. Locals rushed him to Tungipara Upazila Health Complex. When his condition deteriorated, he was sent to the Gopalganj 250-bed General Hospital and died on the way.”


The body is at the general hospital’s morgue awaiting an autopsy, the police official said.


Rishad’s mother, Rahima Begum, has filed a murder case at Tungipara Police Station.
