A woman apparently committed suicide yesterday hours after finding her husband hanging from a tree in Akkelpur upazila of Joypurhat.
The couple were Saiful Islam, 24, son of Lokman Hossain of Rukindipur (Fakirpara) village and Moni Akter, 20.
The couple got married one and a half years ago, villagers said.
Anwar Hossain, a neighbour, said there was no known feud between the couple since they got married.
The couple were having lunch on Wednesday when Saiful tried to feed his wife a piece of meat with his own hand. Some villagers saw it and made fun of them. The couple then had an altercation over the issue.
Later, Moni saw her husband's body hanging from a tree near their house the same night.
As villagers severely criticised her, Moni disappeared from their house on Wednesday night. Villagers found her body hanging from a tree in the village in the morning.
The incidents astounded the family members of the couple.
