OC at Satkhira PS allegedly beats wife to death

Wife of the officer-in-charge (OC) of Patkelghata Police Station in Satkhira succumbed to her injures allegedly inflicted by her husband on March 4.
Sabiha Rahman, mother of a 12-year-old, died Thursday night while she was being shifted to a Dhaka hospital from Khulna Surgical Hospital.
Police and locals said Sabiha came to Patkelghata OC's quarters in the police station complex in Tala upazila on March 2. On March 4 afternoon, the couple allegedly had an altercation during which her husband Kazi Mizanur Rahman beat her up causing serious head injuries, they said.
Following the incident Mizanur called in physician Madhusudan Mandol who advised her to be sent to the Khulna hospital as her condition was deteriorating.
Madhusudan said the condition of the victim was deteriorating when he examined her. He said she was apparently hit by something blunt on the head.
Sabiha was taken to Khulna Surgical Hospital that night and as her condition continued to worsen the doctors there advised she be taken to Dhaka.
Meanwhile, OC Mizanur left for Dhaka on a three-day leave on the plea of giving statement to a Dhaka court as a prosecution witness, police sources said.
Superintendent of Police (SP) of Satkhira Mirza Abdullahel Baki yesterday told The Daily Star that the OC called the police station and informed the station about his wife's death. He said he made a request to Dhaka Metropolitan Police to inform him about what had happened.
He said he has initiated an investigation into the matter even though no cases were filed in this connection.
Sources in the Dhaka Metropolitan Police yesterday said they were trying to secure the body but could not do so as of 10:00pm.
Sabiha who hails from Habiganj was the second wife of Mizanur of Mirpur, Dhaka.
