Lawyer, officer sent to jail in dowry case
A Rangpur court yesterday sent three people, including a lawyer husband, to jail after rejecting their bail prayers in a dowry case.
They are Momotazur Rahman, a lawyer of Dinajpur, his relative Momotaz Begum, a family planning official in Kaunia upazila, and Rita Begum.
They trio submitted bail prayers as their bail secured from the high court expired yesterday. According to the prosecution, Manjuma Begum, of Kaunia upazila, filed the case against seven persons after her husband beat her and forced her out of home in 2010 as she failed to pay Tk.10 lakh as dowry.
