A Sunamganj court sent a man to jail in a case for killing his wife in 2017 rejecting his bail prayer after he appeared before the court yesterday.
The accused, Abul Mansur Liton, 33, son of Abdun Nur, is a resident of Himmatergaon village in Chhatak upazila.
Meanwhile, Liton's elder brother Abdus Shahid Bapon, 40, another accused has been absconding since filing of the case.
Victim's family members said Liton used to torture his wife Isfa Begum, daughter of Azizur Rahman of Bichhana village in Jamalganj upazila, for dowry since their marriage in April 2015.
According to the case statement, Liton and his brother Bapon set Isfa afire over the issue on May 6 in 2017.
Isfa later died on her way to Dhaka Medical College Hospital the following day.
