A middle-aged man hung himself after allegedly hacking his wife to death in Chuadanga on Wednesday.

Police and local sources said the body of Ebadat Ali, 55, was recovered from his home at Boalia village in Alamdanga upazilla, hanging from a bamboo cross beam. Police also recovered the body of Jahanara, 45, Ebadat’s wife, with many hacking wounds from the same house.  

After visiting the crime scene, Chuadanga Additional Superintendent of Police Kalimullah and Alamdanga police station’s Officer-in-charge Asaduzzaman Munshi told the Dhaka Tribune on Thursday that police are yet to establish a motive but the working theory is the 55-year-old-man hacked his wife to death with a sharp weapon at the heat of the moment during a dispute and later killed himself out of remorse.

After initial inquest, police established time of the killing is at 9:30pm on Wednesday. The bodies have been sent to Chuadanga Sadar Hspital for autopsy.
