Drug addict kills mother-in-law

A drug addict youth stabbed his mother-in-law to death and injured his minor son allegedly over a family feud in Kishoreganj Sadar upazila yesterday.

The victim, Halima Khatun, 50, was wife of Saudi expatriate Mohammad Sayem Uddin of Danapatuli Panchimpara village.

Quoting the deceased’s family members, Officer in Charge of Sadar Police Station Abu Bakar Siddiq said Aruna Begum, daughter of Sayem Uddin, was married to Habibul Islam, 25, son of late Kamal Uddin of Monoharpur village, about seven years ago.

After the marriage, Aruna, mother of a three-year-old boy, came to know that Habibul is a drug addict, which triggered a family feud between them.

As a sequel, Habibul often used to torture Aruna that forced her to retune to her parents’ house with her baby boy recently.

Since then Habibul often went to his in-laws’ house and used to hurl abusive words to Aruna and her family members, the OC added.

Around 12:00noon, Habibul again went to Aruna’s house and locked in an altercation with his mother-in-law Halima.

At one stage, Habibul stabbed Halima with a knife indiscriminately, leaving her severely injured, the OC said, adding that Habibul’s son Ananda Hossain, who was in Halima’s arms, also sustained injuries during the attack.

Hearing screams, neighbours went to the spot, rescued the injured duo and took them to Kishoreganj General Hospital where the doctors declared Halima dead while the kid is now undergoing treatment at the hospital.

After the incident, locals caught Habibul and handed him over to police.
