Teenager stabbed dead 'by friend' over World Cup match brawl

A teenager boy was stabbed to death allegedly by his friend in Chandpur Sadar upazila on Monday night following a brawl over World Cup match between Argentine and Mexico.

Deceased Mehedi Hasan was a student of class X and son of Helal Bepari, a resident of South Nanupur village.

The incident happened around 7 pm in front of Amin Beprai's house in the village.

Mehedi was declared dead when he was taken to Chandpur Government General Hospital.

With the help of locals, police detained accused Barkat, 20, and seized the knife he used for stabbing, said A Rashid, Officer in-charge of Sadar Model Police Station.

Mehedi's father Helal said Barkat had beaten his son over an argument while watching the World Cup match on Sunday night.

On Monday night, Barkat called Mehedi from home and severely stabbed him, he added.

Additional Superintendent of police (finance and crime) Sudipto Roy said according to locals they were friend and neighbours.

"They had a fight over personal issues and the accused has confessed to stabbing Mehedi in primary questioning. More information can be known after investigation," Sudipto Roy said.
