After the verdict, Monir was sent to jail in strict police security
A court in Barisal on Thursday sentenced a man to death for killing his wife over dowry in Hizla upazila of the district in 2013.
The convict is Md Monir Hossain of the upazila.
Abu Shamim, judge of Barisal Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal, announced the verdict in presence of the accused in the morning.
After the verdict, Monir was sent to jail in strict police security.
Advocate Faizul Haque Foez, public prosecutor of the tribunal, said Monir killed his wife on January 6, 2013, as Maksuda refused to bring Tk 50,000 as dowry from his father.
On the following day, Maksuda’s brother Oli Uddin filed a case against Monir, his father Shofi, mother Rashida, and brother Nasir in connection with the murder.
During judicial proceedings, Monir’s mother Rashida Begum died.
The court acquitted Monir’s father Shofi Rari and brother Nasir as the charges brought against them were not proved.
