Youth gets life term for killing sister

A Mymensingh court yesterday sentenced a young man to life term imprisonment for killing his younger sister over a family feud in 2014.

The convict is Rubel Mia, 25, son of Badsha Mia of Haluaghat upazila.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Mohammad Iqbal Hossain also fined the convict Tk 10,000.

In default, he is to suffer three months more in jail, Court Inspector Sheikh Kabirul Islam said.

According to the prosecution, Badsha, a day labourer, used to live at a rented house in Jamirdia area in Bhaluka upazila with wife Rokeya Khatun, son Rubel and daughter Amena Khatun, 14.

On February 3, 2014, Badsha and his wife went out of the house for work, keeping Rubel and Amena at home.

Around 9:30am Badsha returned home and found the door locked from inside.

At one stage, hearing Amena screaming from inside Badsha entered the room by breaking open the door and found Amena in a pool of blood with her throat-slit.

Hearing Badsha’s cry for help, neighbours rushed to the spot, rescued injured Amena and took her to Bhaluka Upazila Health Complex where the doctors declared her dead.

They also caught Rubel while he was fleeing the spot and handed him over to police.

Badsha filed a murder case with Bhaluka Police Station accusing Rubel the same day.
