Youth sets wife alight in Sirajganj

UNB

Sirajganj: A young man allegedly tried to burn his wife to death at Gopalpur village in Chauhali upazila on Tuesday over a family feud, reports UNB.

With 40 percent burns on her body, Sonia Khatun, 24, wife of Jahangir Hossain of the village under Enayetpur Police Station, is now fighting for her life at hospital.

Quoting locals, Rashedul Islam, officer-in-charge of the police station, said Sonia was married off to loom labourer Jahangir around five years back.

Since their marriage, the couple used to quarrel over trivial matters.

Jahangir called his wife to a lane by Enayetpur Senior Madrasah at noon and set her afire pouring kerosene into the body, leaving her critically injured. Hearing her screams, locals rescued Sonia and took her to Yunus Ali Medical College Hospital. Meanwhile, a case was filed in this connection. Police were trying to arrest the accused, the OC added.
