A woman was allegedly strangled to death by her husband in Savar on Sunday night.
The deceased is Julekha Begum, wife of Liton from Kushtia's Daulatpur. The couple used to live in a rented house at Razfulbaria area, said police.
Saiful Islam, inspector (investigation) of Ashulia Police Station, told The Daily Star that on information, police recovered Julekha's body from the residence yesterday morning.
After primary investigation, law enforcers suspect that she was strangled to death, as there were injury marks on her neck.
Liton might be behind the killing, as he went into hiding after her death, Saiful said.
"We are trying to track Liton down," said the officer, adding that filing of a case was underway.
