Update : 26 May 2015, 07:28 PM

Unidentified miscreants stabbed to death a Supreme court lawyer’s wife at their flat in the capital’s Nikunja area yesterday.

Lawyer Rafiqul Islam alleged that his wife, Lima Akhter Mukul, 39, had been killed because of his enmity with several people.

The woman was killed between 11:30am and 5:30pm when Rafiqul had been outside, Sub-Inspector of Khilkhet police station Golam Mostafa said. A 13-year-old local boy used to keep an eye on the house and do the household chores, police said quoting Rafiqul.

Rafiqul returned home around 5:30pm and found the collapsible gate open.

Police said the victim had been attacked with a knife. Part of the knife was found near her body.

Rafiqul’s first wife lives in the USA. He married Lima in January.

Police collected evidence from the spot and sent the body to Dhaka Medical College morgue for post mortem examination.
