Autopsy will reveal the cause of death

A housewife was killed, reportedly by her husband, at Sadar upazila in Bogra.

The deceased was Jemy Khatun, 22.

Her husband, Sanowar Hossain, reportedly strangled Jemy to death on Wednesday, for not being given a dowry by her family.  

“Initial reports suggest the housewife was strangled to death evidenced by visible bruises to her throat,” said Bogra Sadar police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Rahim Uddin .

Police found the body by the roadside, said the SI.

"The body has been recovered and sent to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College morgue for autopsy," he said.

According to Jemy’s family, she married Sanowar about seven years ago. Since the very beginning, Sanowar had been torturing Jemy for a dowry.

The autopsy report will show the cause of her death, the police SI said.
