Housewife commits suicide over sexual harassment

Update : 04 May 2017, 12:53 AM
A 20-year-old housewife was found hanged from the ceiling of her residence in the Hazaribagh area of Dhaka on Wednesday after alleging repeated harassment by local goons. Alimuzzaman, officer-in-charge of Hazaribagh police station, said four men had been arrested. “Azim, Kawsar, Mithu, Nazim and several other stalkers were harassing Mousumi as she was living alone in her residence for a few years,” he said, adding that her husband was living separately as they had a conjugal feud between them. “The stalkers had been giving illicit proposals to the lone young housewife for quite a long time and began spreading rumours after she refused to accept the proposals,” the OC said. “Mousumi committed suicide as she failed to tolerate the stalkers.” Police recovered the body of Mousumi on Wednesday and sent it to Mitford Hospital morgue for a post-mortem.
