KHULNA: A Khulna court on Tuesday sentenced a man to death for killing his wife and one-year-old daughter over a family feud in 2015.

The condemned convict, Mahabubur Morol, is the son of Siraj Morol of Dumuria upazila of the district. He was tried in absentia.

Khulna Senior District and Sessions Judge Mir Shafiqul Alam handed down the punishment to Mahabubur and also imposed a fine of Tk 50,000.

According to the prosecution, Mahabubur married Reshma Begum in 2014. He used to torture his wife over small issues since their marriage.
