A housewife was stabbed to death allegedly by her husband at Nischintapur Shahapara in the municipality area of the district early yesterday.
The deceased was identified as Poly Begun, 22, daughter of Bokul Sheikh of Poliya village under Moksedpur upazila in Gopalganj district.
Police recovered the body by chasing a microbus while the body was allegedly being taken to Gopalganj for hiding the killing incident.
Officer in-charge of Thakurgaon police station Md. Firoz Khan, quoting locals, told this correspondent over cell phone that Poly was married off with Md. Sumon, 30, son of Khoka Mia of Nischintapur Shahapara two years ago.
On the fateful night, Sumon came to the house at about 2:00pm and engaged in a feud with his wife like the other days. At one stage, he stabbed Poly to death at about 3:00pm.
After killing Poly, Sumon , with the help of his father, planned to conceal the incident and brought a microbus to carry the body to Gopalganj.
On information, a police team, led by sub-inspector Nazmul Hossain, chased the microbus and seized it at Kobirajhat village in Birganj upazila of Dinajpur and brought the body back to Thakurgaon.
Police arrested Sumon's father Khoka Mia in this connection but Sumon managed to flee the scene.
