Expatriate's first wife kills 2nd wife
A woman was allegedly hacked to death by her husband's first wife in Panchlaish area of Chittagong city yesterday.
The victim, Sharmin Akther, 25, was the second wife of Abdul Hakim of Boalkhali and mother of a one-year-old boy.
Hakim has three daughters with his first wife Rozi Akther. He married Sharmin as he wanted a son, said the victim's uncle Mohammed Azim.
Rozi Akhter confessed to the murder, said Mohiuddin Mahmood, officer-in-charge of Panchlaish Police Station.
Hakim, a businessman in Abu Dhabi, kept his wives in separate houses. Hakim, who had gone abroad a month back, left his second wife with her parents. However, Rozi insisted that Sharmin live with her, said Shamsunnahar, Sharmin's mother.
Yesterday when Ali, Rozi's cousin, called her over the phone he found she was crying. Alarmed, he asked their driver Anis to check up on her. Anis found the door to the house open and after entering he found Sharmin lying in a pool of blood with cuts in her head and abdomen, said the driver. Rozi had locked herself in her room and did not come out, he added.
