The deceased were identified as Asad Mia, 55, son of Mir Hossain of the same village, his wife Parveen, 40, and their youngest son Leon, 11.

According to police sources, Asad Mia along with his family members of Jamshait village was sleeping in his house like every other day while, Assad's younger brother Deen Islam attacked them at about 3pm on Wednesday. 

Deen Islam struck Asad on the head with a shovel. He later killed his sister-in-law Parveen and nephew Leon in the same manner. Soon after the incident, Deen Islam dug a hole next to the house and buried the bodies.

The next day, on Thursday afternoon, Asad's son Mofazzal started looking for his parents and sibling. When he did not find any of them, he informed Katiadi Model Police Station. On the instructions of Katiadi Model Police Station Office-in-Charge M.A Jalil, Sub Inspector Mozammel went to their house and rescued the bodies from a hole in the yard. 

Meanwhile, police arrested four people including his mother and brother on the same night on suspicion of involvement in the murder. Later on Friday, during preliminary interrogation, Asad's younger brother Deen Islam admitted his involvement in the incident.

Police Super Mashrukur Rahman Khaled visited the spot. Hossainpur Circle Additional Police Super Sonahar Ali said, "It is believed that they were killed and their bodies were buried due to a dispute over property.
