A Chinese citizen is under police arrest for the murder of his accomplice in the city of Sylhet, Bangladesh. Bangladesh police say they have prepared a charge sheet against 48-year-old Soon Xi, holding them responsible for the murder of his 46-year-old colleague Wen Wantao.
The incident occurred during a dispute at his residence on Tuesday. OC Abu Farhad of Sylhet Kotwali Model Police Station said that two knives have been recovered from a flat on the fifth floor of a residential building in Pathanula. Farhad said Soonan was arrested in an injured condition, while Wayne’s body was sent for postmortem, which had deep chest wounds. He said that it was difficult to question Sun as he could only speak Chinese.
Chinese employees have problems with local people in Bangladesh Both Chinese citizens worked in a power project being set up in Kumaragaon, Sylhet.
In April, five Bangladeshi were killed in police firing following a dispute between Bangladeshi workers and Chinese managers. Workers were angered over the non-payment of dues before Ramadan, refusal to stop work during Iftar, and not being given leave on Friday to offer prayers.
According to Bangladesh’s gender activist Ayesha Zaman Shimu, Chinese employees often have problems with locals in Bangladesh because they refuse to follow local customs, but are often involved in fighting among themselves. Zaman said, “This happens very rarely with Indian or Japanese or even Western employees who respect local customs.”
