Abdul Alim killed his wife with the help of a friend

A Tangail court on Monday handed down capital punishment to two men holding them guilty of murdering a woman over dowry on April 20, 2012. 

The convicted are Abdul Alim alias Sumon, 32, from Hinnaipara village in Kalihati upazila, and Shamim Al Mamun, 29, of the same village.

Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge Khaleda Yeasmin passed the verdict and also ordered a fine of Tk1 lakh to be paid by each of the accused, confirmed Special Public Prosecutor Nasimul Akhtar Nasim.

Abdul Alim married Sumi Akhter of Faliarghana village in Tangail Sadar, when he was a  Gazipur Industrial Police constable in 2011, said Prosecutor Nasim.

"On the occasion of the marriage, a dowry of Tk5 lakh was fixed to be paid. But Sumi's parents managed to pay only Tk3 lakh. Abdul Alim would torture his wife on a regular basis for the rest of the money.

"He sent his wife back to her father's home at one point. On April 20, 2012, Alim took his wife to the Beribadh area from her father's home, and killed her there with the help of the other accused, Shamim Al Mamun."

Sumi's mother filed a case against the two for murder, added prosecutor Nasim.

The convicts were shifted to Tangail jail after the verdict was delivered.
