The deceased’s husband and cousin sister are in police custody
A woman, who worked at a readymade garment factory, has reportedly committed suicide after a martial dispute with her husband in Dhaka.
Mosammat Salma, 23, of Barguna, allegedly hanged herself from the ceiling of the couple’s rented flat at the capital's Pallbi around 2:30am on Sunday, said police.
Her body was recovered by husband Mintu and Salma’s cousin Sathi, who lives with the couple. Around 3am, the duo took Salma to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), where the doctors declared her dead.
According to Mintu, he and Salma got married three months ago and have been living in that house since then. Both worked at the same factory.
The couple used to have heated arguments over different issues, according to police.
Inspector Bachchu Mia, the in-charge of DMCH police outpost, said both Mintu and Sathi were later handed over to Pallabi police’s custody for further interrogation.
Salma’s body was kept at the hospital morgue for an autopsy, he added.
