A young housewife was killed and her husband badly injured when the couple allegedly attacked each other with sharp weapons over a family feud in Phulbari upazila of the district on Tuesday.

The deceased, Shahanaz Parvin, 18, daughter of Shahidul Sardar of Boigram village in Parbatipur upazila, was married to Saju Mia, 22, son of Azizul Islam of Krishnapur village in Phulbari upazila, about four months ago.
