A woman was killed allegedly by her husband following a family feud in the capital’s Mugda area on Sunday, according to report.
Police arrested SM Sazzad, a private firm employee and husband of Ludmila Ahmed Liza, 38, an artist of Bangladesh Udichi Shilpi Gosthi.
Sazzad confessed to killing his wife after he was produced before a magistrate yesterday. He was later sent to jail, police and court sources said.
Sazzad stated that his wife died when he hit her in the head with a piece of wood at one stage of quarrelling in their Maniknagar house around 9:30am on Sunday, said Enamul Haque, officer-in-charge of Mugda Police Station.
Sazzad himself took Liza to Mugda General Hospital where doctors declared him dead. The hospital staff handed him over to police as he sometimes tried to pass it off as a suicide case and sometimes an accidental death.
Minhazul Abedin Mreedul, a relative of the victim, alleged that Sazzad, who married Liza 13 years ago, started “mistrusting” the woman, a mother of two kids, several months back and finally killed her.
Their six-year-old kid witnessed the killing, he claimed. Liza’s father Iqbal Ahmed filed a murder case with Mugda Police Station, accusing Sazzad.
