Two women hacked

A youth hacked his wife and mother-in-law with a local machete following a family feud yesterday in the city' Sutrapur area.
Police said the youth identified as Ashiqur Rahman hacked his wife Sima Akhter, 22, and mother-in-law Farida Begum, 50, following a feud over his unemployment.
Sub-Inspector Mohammad Shaheen of Sutrapur Police Station said Ashiq could not pay his house rent and bear family expenses as he is unemployed for the last few months. The family members often used to rebuke him over the issues, Shaheen added.
The feud erupted in the morning as Ashiq didn't heed his wife's request to look for a job, he said.
At one stage of quarrel, Ashiq began to hack his wife Sima with a machete and mother-in-law Farida fell victim to the incident as she was trying to save her daughter, the SI said quoting Farida.
The injured were rushed to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH).
