Dhaka: The tribunal has announced the death sentence to husband Sujan Mia in the case of murder of Marufa Begum for dowry demand in Hazaribagh of the capital almost four years ago.

On Wednesday (August 31), Judge Begum Samchunnahar of Dhaka Women and Child Torture Prevention Tribunal-5 gave this order. He was also fined 1 lakh rupees.

The accused was present in the court when the verdict was announced. He was later sent to jail on a warrant.

State public prosecutor Ali Asgar Swapan confirmed this information.

It is known from the statement of the case that the accused Sujan Mia married Marufa Begum in a love relationship, although he had a wife and children earlier. After the marriage, the accused demanded money as dowry from Marufa at various times. First some money is given. Later on April 27, 2018 at 8 pm, accused Sujan again asked his wife Marufa for a dowry of Tk 2 lakh saying that he would buy a car.

But when Marufa refused to pay the dowry, her husband Sujan kill-punched and kicked her to the floor of the house. Then hit him on the head with an iron pipe in the house. Then the people around came running on Marufa’s screams and the accused left with his two daughters. Later Marufa was taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where he died the next day while undergoing treatment.

In that incident, on the evening of April 28, 2018, Marufa’s brother Rubel Howladar filed the case at Hazaribagh Police Station as the plaintiff.
