A Dhaka court sent Mahfuza Rahman, wife of Asadur Rahman Arif, a private bank official, to jail in connection with a case lodged over torturing a 14-year-old domestic help.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mashud-ur-Rahman passed the order after police produced the woman before the court on completion of her two-day remand in the case.

Earlier, another Dhaka court on Monday sent Mahfuza’s husband Asadur Rahman Arif to jail on completion of his two-day remand in the same case.

According to the case, the domestic help was rescued from the couple’s Kuril Biswaroad area flat by her sister on June 30 and was taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital. She later filed the case against Asadur and his wife Mahfuza Rahman.
