The police recovered the blood-stained body of a housewife named Sumaiya Akhter Mim (20) from Muktagacha in Mymensingh. The deceased is the daughter of Mozammel Hossain Selim of Malajani village of Dulla Union of Sumaiya Upazila.
Local residents informed the police after seeing Sumaiya’s body hanging from a tree near the rented house of Chechua village in the upazila on Friday morning.
The deceased housewife is the wife of Sohag Mia (24) of the same village. They have a two-month-old son named Sawad.
According to the relatives of the deceased, Sumaiya and Sohag got married two years ago after having a love affair. After the marriage, there were quarrels in the family. A few months ago, Sumaiya came to her father’s house after quarreling with her husband. When the deceased’s father objected to let the daughter go to her in-laws’ house, husband Sohag and mother-in-law Selina forcefully took her away.
In this context, the deceased’s uncle Suruj Mia told Manavkanth that my nephew is being killed by his in-laws and hanged from a tree. I want justice for the killer.
Mozammel Hossain Selim, the father of the deceased, said that the in-laws, including son-in-law Sohag, killed my daughter. They didn’t let my daughter live. I want justice for my daughter’s murder.
Mahmudul Hasan, OC of Muktagachha Police Station, said that after receiving information, the body was recovered from the spot and sent to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital. Legal action will be taken subject to investigation in this regard. The case is pending.
