Wife hacked to death in Pirojpur
The deceased was Asma Begum, 26 and the accused is Rezaul Islam, 32 of Tala upazila in Satkhira district. Rezaul managed to escape the scene right after the incident. Pirojpur Sadar Thana Officer-in-Charge Masumur Rahman Biswas told Dhaka Tribune correspondent that Rezaul and Asma along with nine others were living in a rented house owned by Rupa Begum in the area for eight months. Masumur also said they all were labours by profession. Rupa said: “One of the tenants named Alamgir informed me about the incident in the morning. So I rushed into the house from the back-door and saw Asma's dead body.” Masumur said: “Police detained Rezaul's housemates for interrogation. “Besides, a machete, which is believed to be used in murder, has also been seized.” Further details will be given after the autopsy, he added.
