The victim was identified as Nasirul Islam, 21, son of Khalilur Rahman. 

According to the villagers, Nasirul was tied to a tree and tortured brutally by his in-laws for marrying their, daughter Keyamoni, 18, in secrecy.

When Keyamoni’s family members came to know about it, they turned furious and started mounting pressure on Nasirul’s family to bring their daughter back. 

They even promised to accept the marriage.

Convinced, Nasirul’s family tracked down the duo and they started living in their respective houses. 

On Monday, Nasirul was headed to visit Keyamoni at her house, when some members of his in-laws family picked him up and tied him to a tree before beating him mercilessly.

Later, he was taken to Ranisankail Upazila Health Complex from where he was shifted to Dinajpur Abdur Rahim Medical College and Hospital for better treatment.

Meanwhile, Nasirul’s father Khalilur Rahman lodged a written complaint with Ranishankail police station against four people.

Following the complaint, police arrested Keyamoni’s mother, Shirina Akhter, said Ranishankail police OC SM Zahid Iqbal.
