A woman at Binnabari village in Tarash upazila of Sirajganj has killed herself as her son reportedly eloped with a neighbour's wife.

Police said Firoza Khatun, 42, mother of Firoz Ahmed, took her own life as newly married Firoz fled home a week ago with a neighbour's wife following an extramarital affair.

Unable to bear the shock, Firoza, wife of Mominur Rahman, took pesticides on Friday. Her family members tried to take her to Natore Hospital but she died on the way.
