A youth was stabbed to death in the city's Sutrapur early Monday.
The deceased was identified as Javed Ali, 36, an electrician. He was residing at a rented house with his family members in the Dholaikhal Rokanpur area under the Sutrapur police station.
The incident took place at the Dholaikhal Rukunpur area just after midnight on Sunday, technically early Monday.
Mohammad Azim, the deceased's uncle, said his nephew was an electrician. He didn't know why his nephew was stabbed and who was involved in this incident.
"But my nephew told me in a bloody state that a young man named Shawon stabbed him and ran away. He disclosed the name to me as I tried to rescue him in critical condition and take him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH)," he added.
After being taken to the emergency department of the hospital, the doctor on duty declared him dead around 1:15 AM.
DMCH police camp in charge Inspector Md. Bachchu Mia said the body has been kept at DMCH morgue for post-mortem.
