BARISHAL: A tribunal here on Thursday sentenced a man to death penalty for killing wife.

The condemned convict is identified as Monir, 26, hails from Baushia village in Hizla upazila of the district.

Abu Shamim, judge of Barishal Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal, delivered the verdict in presence of the accused on Thursday morning.

However, the court acquitted Monir’s father Shofi Rari and brother Nasir as the charges brought against them were not proved.

Meanwhile, Monir’s mother Rashida Begum exempted from the charges as she died during the judicial proceedings.

According to the prosecution, Monir beat his wife Maksuda, 21, to death on January 6, 2013 as Maksuda refused to bring Tk 50,000 as dowry from his father.

On the next day, Maksuda’s brother Oli Uddin filed a case accusing four people including Monir, his parents—Shofi Rari, Rashida Begum—and brother Nasir for murder.
