Man, woman tied to pole, tortured
A man and a woman have been tortured for hours for allegedly having an affair in Chuadanga sadar upazila. The victims -- Rina Khatun, 25, and Ariful Islam, 45 -- were assaulted by the woman's husband Faraz Ali and his relatives in Goborbara village. Witnesses said locals had caught Ariful with Rina in the early hours of Tuesday from Faraz's house. Rina’s husband and in-laws tied the duo to pole and tortured them for hours. Later in the evening, a kangaroo court comprised of Titudah union chairman Akter Hossain and other villagers resolved the dispute and asked Ariful to give 10-kantha of land to Rina for the sake of her future. Villagers said Ariful had promised to write over the land by next Sunday. Meanwhile, responding to a query, the union chairman denied having any knowledge about the duo being tortured. Titudah police said they were unaware about the incident.
