Woman confesses to killing husband

Police arrested a woman in Bogura yesterday in connection with the killing of her husband in Chattogram on February 16.

When Mosammat Asha Akter, 23, was produced before Chattogram Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Salem Md Noman, she confessed to killing her husband, Md Shamim, said police.

The court sent her to jail.

Police recovered the throat-slit body of Shamim, a cook by profession, from a house in the port city's Pahartali area. A case was filed with Pahartali Police Station.

Additional Commissioner (administration and finance) Kusum Dewan of Chattogram Metropolitan Police yesterday said Asha and Shamim got married a year ago after getting acquainted through Facebook.

Shamim hid the fact that he was already married with children, she said. “After finding out about it, Asha, who hails from Bogura, planned to take revenge.”

During primary interrogation, Asha told police that she killed Shamim as she felt betrayed, said Sub-inspector (SI) Arbon Barua of Pahartali Police Station.

Often times Shamim used to take money from Asha, which might have also compelled her to carry out the plan, the SI added.

“She admitted that she killed Shamim alone and then fled to Bogura,” he said, adding that police arrested her from her workplace.
