A truck driver was stabbed to death allegedly by muggers in Demra area of the capital early Saturday.
The deceased was identified as Saiful Islam, son of Fazlul Haque of Mendipur Uttarpara in Demra.
Quoting family members, police said Saiful used to drive his own truck.
Police found him wounded in Demra area and took him to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries around 5 am, said Inspector Bachchu Mia, in-charge of the hospital police camp.
“He had no enmity with others. Muggers stabbed him in his abdomen at night and snatched away Tk 10,000-15000 from his possession,” said Saiful’s uncle Mostaq Ahmed while talking to police.
Efforts are on to arrest the culprits, said police.
