Four arrested over ‘murder attempt’ on Taiwanese couple at Uttara
Four suspects have been arrested over an attempt to murder a Taiwanese couple in their home at Dhaka’s Uttara.
The suspects that include a woman were caught during a raid at a house in Uttara by the Rapid Action Battalion-1 on Thursday night.
Details of the operation will be given out in a press briefing to be held later in the day, said RAB's Legal and Media Wing Assistant Director Mizanur Rahman on Friday morning.
Wang Ming Chi, 54, and his wife Li Li Hwa, 50 were attacked on Nov 5 last year.
The three attackers hacked them using sharp weapons and robbed Tk 600,000.
Police claimed the attackers are relatives and arrested one ‘Jagangir’, a former employee at the couple's business, Xin Xing Yang International Company Limited.
A search was on for Jahangir’s two brother-in-laws, ‘Shaju’ and ‘Raju’, also past employees for the couple.
“The three attacked the house primarily for the money,” Deputy Commissioner Bidhan Tripura of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police had said.
The couple has been living in Bangladesh for more than a decade. PVC doors and ceilings are manufactured in their factory at Gazipur’s Gachha.
Wang Ming Chi is the company’s managing director and his wife is one of the directors, according to a news agency.
