2 get life for killing woman
A Sirajganj court yesterday sentenced two people to life imprisonment for killing a woman in 2007.
District and Sessions Judge Biplab Goswami handed down the verdict to Nur Islam Rubel, 28, son of late Abdul Quddus Sarker, and Abdus Salam, 30, son of Tamij Uddin.
The court also fined the convicts Tk 10,000 each. If they fail to pay, they would have to serve two more years in jail.
The court, however, acquitted four other accused as the charges brought against them could not be proved.
The victim, Jannatul Ferdaus, 35, a widow, was the sister of convict Rubel.
According to the prosecution, Rubel and Salam took Jannatul Ferdaus to a field near her house at Parpotla village on the night of July 4 in 2007 and strangled her in a bid to grab her land.
