Lynching of Woman

Two arrested

Police on Thursday night arrested two people in connection with the lynching of a woman, assaulting policemen and vandalising a police van in the capital's Jatrabari area.
The arrestees are Abdullah, 25, and Hasan Ali, 28.
Earlier on Thursday noon, angry locals beat Maksuda Begum, 40, suspecting her as a child-trafficker at Hashem road of Matuail. Maksuda died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital. The mob also attacked the policemen while trying to control the rowdy crowd.
Masud Hossain, a brother-in-law of Mahsuda, said Mahsuda was mentally ill and she was not a child-trafficker at all. He demanded fair investigation in this regard.
Two cases have been filed in this connection.
