CHATTOGRAM: Police arrested the much-talked-about convict Kulsum Akter Kulsumi with her associate, who sent an innocent woman to jail alluring of food, from the city’s EPZ area on Thursday early hours.  

The innocent woman Minu was killed in a mysterious road accident days after getting release from the jail with the help of lawyer last month.

The arrestees were identified as Kulsum Akhter alias Kulsumi, 35, daughter of Anu Mia, hailed from Gorosthan area of Lohagara upazila in the district, and Morjina Akter, 30, hailed from Jhalokati district.
