The deceased allegedly tried to stop her husband from substance abuse

A man has been accused of killing his wife as she tried to stop him from taking drugs.

Police recovered the body of Priya Biswas, 19, from her husband's house and sent it to Gopalganj General Hospital morgue for an autopsy on Thursday morning.

Priya, from Khulna’s Tutpara, married Sanjay Mandal, 23, of Muksudpur upazila’s Talbari village, around two years ago.

Sanjay is accused of strangling his wife to death at their Narayanganj home, where the couple lived for his work. Later, he rented a vehicle and took her body to his Gopalganj home on Wednesday night.

The couple frequently quarrelled about Sanjay’s problem with substance abuse. On Wednesday night, Sanjay was taking drugs at their Narayanganj house when Priya tried to stop him. That is when he allegedly strangled her to death.

Priya’s mother, Beleka Biswas, said: “I received a call from Priya around 8pm on Wednesday when she told me that she would die. At the time, Sanjay took the phone from her and turned it off. Her phone was unreachable after that.”

“I received the news of her death this morning (Thursday) and came to her in-laws’ house in Gopalganj. Sanjay killed her. I want justice for my daughter,” she added.

Priya’s maternal uncle, Purna Shikder, said: “My niece tried to save Sanjay from drugs, but she failed. Sanjay is now acting to get rid of the murder accusation.”

Sanjay, denying the allegation, said: “It is true that we used to quarrel about my drug addiction and for that, she may have committed suicide. I did not kill my wife.”

SI Muhidul Islam, Muksudpur police outpost in-charge, said: “We received a complaint of murder. The body was sent for an autopsy, and once the report comes, we will be sure about the cause of death. After that, we will take necessary action.”
