A paternal uncle and a cousin of five-year-old child Tuhin Hasan reportedly confessed before a court on Tuesday that they slaughtered him on the lap of his father.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Shyam Kanta Sinha recorded the confessional statements of victim’s uncle Nasir Mia and cousin Shahriar, said Mizanur Rahman, superintendent of police of the district.

He was speaking at a press briefing at his office in the evening.

He said the family brutally murdered the minor boy only to implicate their rivals in the case.

Meanwhile, the same court placed three people, including Tuhin’s father Abdul Basir, on a three-day remand in connection with the murder.

Earlier, police had produced them before the court seeking a five-day remand, said KM Nazrul Islam, officer-in-charge of Dirai Police Station.

The two others who were remanded are uncle Abdur Musabir and neighbour Jamshed Ali.

Monira Begum, mother of Tuhin, filed a case against 10 people on Tuesday in connection with the murder.

The body of the minor boy was found hanged from a tree on Monday morning with his ears, genital parts and throat severed. 

Two knives used in the murder were also found stuck in his abdomen.
