Police arrested Rekha from Thakurgaon on Wednesday
A Dhaka court on Friday placed domestic help Rekha Akter and her husband Farhad Ershad on eight-day remand each in a case lodged for brutally torturing an elderly woman in the house, where Rekha used to work.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Masudur Rahman passed the order as police produced the duo before the court and pleaded to place them on a 10-day remand.
Rekha was seen viciously assaulting the septuagenarian woman in CCTV footage on Monday and the video clippings created ruckus for its sheer brutality.
