Ishwori was murdered near her rented room on Saturday night while returning from her work at Teku. According to the police, Rumba has confessed that he killed her after she started threatening him about revealing their affair to their family members.
SSP Chanda said, “Both of them were married and had separate families, therefore, their relationship was not moral.”

The police have seized the knife used in the murder from Aale´s room.
