The accused hanged his wife’s body to the ceiling of a veranda to cover up the murder as a suicide
Police arrested a man for reportedly strangulating his wife to death and later covering it up as a suicide from Khoksa upazila, Kushtia.
The accused, Suman Hossain, 28, allegedly mercilessly beat his wife, Meem Khatun, 22, over a marital dispute and when she lost sense amid the torture, he strangulated her to death on Saturday night, police sources say.
“We presented the accused before the court and Sumon confessed to killing his wife, then hanging her dead body to a ceiling of his house to cover-up the murder as a suicide,” said Khoksa police station OC Idris Ali.
“The girl’s brother filed a case against Suman on Sunday and we recovered local weapons from Suman’s room,” added the OC.
Suman is a reputed drug addict of the area and regularly used to have disputes with his wife Meem, local sources said.
