Man ‘stabs’ wife to death

A woman who worked as a domestic worker was allegedly stabbed to death by her second husband at her owner’s house in the city’s Kafrul area on Sunday.

The victim is identified as Fatema Akhter, 35.

The incident occurred on the first floor of House 939 on Eidgah Road at Ibrahimpur in the area at about 11:45 am.

Officer-in-charge (OC) of Kafrul Police Station Hafizur Rahman told the Daily Sun that Fatema got married to the man, whose name was not disclosed, about two months ago.

On the day, the man went into the house where his wife was working, knifed her and then fled the scene, he said.

The homemaker tried to save the maid, but in vain, he said, adding that the woman died on the spot.

After the murder, the Crime Scene of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) visited the spot and collected evidence, he said.
