Police recovered bodies of a mother and her minor son from their house at Bakshapota village in Maheshpur upazila under Jhenaidah district early on Saturday.
The deceased were identified as Ripa Khatun (22) and her son Rabbi (6).Ripa’s husband Mobin Hossain said that he was sleeping in the veranda while his wife along with their son was sleeping inside the house.
After getting up in the morning, he knocked at the door but found no response. Without having any other option he, together with some of his neighbours, broke the door and saw their bodies.
Maheshpur Police Station officer-in-charge (OC) Morshed Hossain said that they primarily suspect that the mother choked the child to death and later committed suicide by hanging herself.
Family feud was responsible for the tragic incident.
