Sagar Sarwar and his wife, Meherun Runi, both in their late 30’s, were stabbed to death at their apartment early on Saturday.

Sagar Sarwar, a news editor at private TV station Maasranga, was found with his hands tied behind his back.

Meherun Runi worked as a senior reporter at ATN Bangla, another private station.

Preliminary investigations suggested that the killings had been planned and that the couple had probably known their attackers, a senior detective was quoted by local newspapers as saying.
