<i>Because of lust for land</i>
After nine months of the incident, a case was filed yesterday with a court here accusing three people including a woman of killing her first husband and his mother by poisoning.
The accused are Masura Khatun, Firoz Hossain and Tariqul Islam of village Ghona in Sadar upazila.
Masura Khatun divorced her first husband Abdullah Gazi and married Firoz Hossain about 10 years ago.
Obaidullah, younger brother of Abdullah filed the case with the Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court against the three on charge of killing his mother and elder brother Abdullah.
Court sources said Masura divorced Abdullah about a decade ago but her only son Tariqul Islam stayed with her.
Abdullah did not marry again for the sake of his son's future and used to live with her mother Sabiron Bibi. He bought 12 kathas of land in the name of Masura which he possessed even after their divorce, sources said.
As a dispute over land between Abdullah and Masura became rife, village elders at an arbitration asked Masura to transfer the land in the name of Abdullah on December 2, 2008, sources added.
But on December 1, Sabiron and Abdullah suddenly fell sick and died on way to Sadar hospital.
The complainant filed the case after he came to know that his mother and elder brother were poisoned to death by the accused to grab the land.
Judge AKM Samsul Arefin of the Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court accepted the case and ordered officer-in-charge (OC) of the Sadar police station to accept his petition and file a case against the accused.
