Man gets death penalty for killing mother-in-law in Netrakona
NETRAKONA, Feb 13: A court here on Tuesday sentenced a man to death for killing his mother-in-law in 2016.
The convict is identified as Alamgir Hussain, 32, hailed from village Mubarakpurin Sadar upazila.
According to the case statement, Alamgir's wife Rina Aktar went to her father's house on February 28, 2016 due to torture by her husband over dowry conflict.
Later, Alamgir tried to bring back his wife and went to his in-law's house. But his efforts went in vain as his mother-in-law Fatema Aktar, 50, did not agree with his proposal.
At that stage, Alamgir became furious and hacked his mother-in- law to death near her house at Mubarakpur on March 1, 2016.
Later, the victim's son Rasel Mia filed a murder case with Sadar Police Station against Alamgir.
Police submitted charge-sheet before the court on April 25, 2016.
After examining the records and witnesses, District and Sessions Judge KM Rasheduzzaman Raja delivered the verdict at a crowded courtroom in presence of the convict.
