Housewife killed by husband in Jamalpur


A housewife was killed allegedly by her husband at Char Daserbari
village in Sarishabari upazila on Tuesday afternoon.
The victim was identified as Hawa Begum, 21, mother of one child and
wife of Jakirul, a resident of the village.
Police quoted villagers and victim’s family members as saying Jakirul
had been demanding dowry from Hawa’s family since after their marriage
three years back, and he often used to torture her for it.
On Tuesday afternoon, they picked up a quarrel over the matter and at
one stage, Jakirul strangulated her to death and then hanged the body
to make it appear that she committed suicide.
Accordingly, he told the villagers so.
On information, police recovered the body and sent it to Jamalpur
General Hospital morgue for autopsy.
An unnatural death case was filed in this connection.
Qamrul Ahsan, officer-in-charge of Sarishabari police station, said
they were investigating the incident. -UNB, Jamalpur
