Local said Tanisha’s stepmother Mukta Khatun could not tolerate the girl and often tortured her whenever she came to visit her father. 

On Monday, Tanisha came to her father’s place but her father was not at home. She went to sleep with her grandmother but later the stepmother took the girl to her room. When Tanisha fell asleep, Mukta hacked her several times with a sharp weapon.

Locals rushed to the spot as Tanisha screamed and informed the police. Police later arrested Mukta and seized the weapon, confirmed Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Terkhada police station Mohammad Golam Mostafa.

Tanisha was rushed to Terkhada Upazila Health Complex and then transferred to Khulna Medical College Hospital where on-duty doctors declared her dead.
