Sumi Akhter (30), wife of a police officer who poured kerosene on herself and set herself on fire on Dasmina in Patuakhali, died.
He died on Wednesday night while undergoing treatment at the Sheikh Hasina Burn Institute. Before this, the incident took place at the police officer’s house near the police station around 2:30 am on Tuesday.
Sumi is the wife of Sahidul Alam, assistant sub-inspector of Dasmina police station. He lived with his wife on the ground floor of Harun Forrester’s third floor building next to Sabuj Bagh police station.
It is known that Sumi often used to worry and go crazy after not having children for a long time after marriage. Many doctors and poets showed no benefit. But Sahidul was always satisfied with his wife and there was no family quarrel.
On Tuesday, Sumi suddenly poured kerosene on herself and set herself on fire. Later, Sahidul and the policemen of the police station rescued him and took him to Dashmina Hospital.
Dashmina Hospital doctor Mithun Chandra Howladar said that more than 50 percent of the police officer’s wife’s body was burnt. Later, he was sent to Barisal Sher-e Bangla Medical Hospital and finally to Sheikh Hasina Burn Institute in Dhaka for advanced treatment. He died while undergoing treatment here.
