Housewife killed 'by husband'

A housewife was killed allegedly by her husband over a family feud in Jashore Sadar upazila on Monday night.

The deceased, Ripa Khatun, daughter of Md Musa of Bishori village in Jhikargachha upazila, was wife of Imran Hossain of Bagdanga village.

Being informed by the villagers, police recovered Ripa's body from a nearby paddy field adjacent to her house and sent it to the hospital for autopsy, Officer in Charge (OC) of Jashore Kotwali Police Station Apurba Hassan said.

Deceased's aunt Khuku Begum said the couple got married about 10 years ago and they have a seven-year-old son.

Imran, a trucker, married another girl about 10 days ago, she said.

Imran locked in an altercation with Rupa over the issue around 11:00pm and at one stage, he strangled Rupa to death and dumped the body in the paddy field, Khuku alleged.

Police primarily suspect that Imran might have killed his wife and dumped her body there, the OC said.
