A housewife was killed by her husband allegedly over a family feud in Ishwarganj municipality area yesterday.
The victim, Lucky Akter, 25, was wife of Sabuj Mia of Mechera village in Tarakanda upazila.
Quoting the deceased’s family members, police said Lucky, daughter of day labourer Motiur Rahman of Duttapara area, was married to Sabuj, son of Abdul Kadir, three years ago and came to visit her parents’ house a few days ago.
Sabuj, a mason, who came to his in-laws house on Tuesday, locked in an altercation with Lucky yesterday morning over a trifling matter and at one stage, Sabuj stabbed her with a knife, leaving her critically injured around 7:30am.
Family members rescued Lucky and took her to Ishwarganj Upazila Health Complex where the doctors declared her dead.
Police recovered the body and sent it to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital for autopsy.
Soon after the incident, neighbours caught Sabuj while he was fleeing the area and handed him over to the police.
In primary interrogation, Sabuj admitted his involvement in the murder, police said, adding that Sabuj was later produced before a Mymensingh court yesterday afternoon that sent him to jail.
