A woman and her daughter were allegedly poisoned to death following a feud over dowry at Jamirdia Kashor in Bhaluka upazila of Mymensingh early yesterday. The deceased were identified as Nazma Akhter Moyna, 22, wife of Saidul Islam, 25, a pick-up van driver, and their four-month old daughter Sadia Akhter. Quoting neighbours, sub-inspector of Bhaluka Police Station Altaf Hossain said Saidul Islam married Moyna of the same locality some six years ago and the couple had two children. Since the marriage, Saidul had been allegedly pressing Moyna for dowry but Moyna could not manage the demanded money from her poor father Nuhu Mia.   The pressure for dowry increased in recent days when Saidul started demanding Tk 18 lakh to buy a new pick-up van. Saidul might have poured poison in the mouth of Moyna and her daughter forcibly, police sources said. Neighbours rushed to the spot and took them to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital (MMCH) where the doctors declared them dead. On information, police recovered the bodies and sent them to MMCH morgue for autopsy yesterday noon. Saidul and his family members went into hiding soon after the incident.
