A businessman was allegedly stabbed to death by a snatcher while he was withdrawing money from an ATM booth of Dutch-Bangla Bank in the city’s Uttara area early Friday, reports BSS.

The deceased was identified as M Sharif Ullah, 44.

Police has arrested a snatcher who identified as Abdus Samad, 38, from the capital and recovered a blood stained knife from his possession relating to this incident. 

"The killing was taken place at Dutch-Bangla Bank ATM Booth located at Sonargaon Janapath road at Uttara sector-11 around 12:30am," said Mohammad Mohsin, officer-in-charge (OC) of Uttara-west Police station.

After the incident, the local people detained the alleged snatcher and handed over him to the police, said the OC.

Police sources said the snatcher all of a sudden attacked on the right side of the businessman's throat with a sharp knife when he was withdrawing cash from the booth during the night on way of returning to his home, leaving him critically injured.

In one stage, Sharif fell down on the floor and the security guard of the ATM booth shouted and detained the snatcher with the help of locals when he tried to flee, according to a police case filed by the victim's family.
