Woman jailed for husband’s murder
Four people, including the victim's wife, were sentenced to life in prison yesterday by a Joypurhat court for the 2001 murder of a man, which was motivated by an extramarital affair.
The convicts are -- Dolly Begum, Suren Urau, Mostafizur Rahman, and Kafa. The victim's wife Dolly was tried in absentia.
According to the prosecution, Abul and Dolly fought ever since they got married, and eventually, Dolly developed an extramarital affair with Mostafizur.
At one stage, Abul came to know about the affair, which led Dolly and Mostafiz to plan to kill him.
On September 28, 2001, Abul was called to his in-laws' house, where he was strangled to death by the convicts.
Police recovered his body the following day, after which a case was filed with Panchbibi Police Station.
