Qatar expatriate killed in Ctg   

Chattogram: A man who allegedly received serious injury as his ex-wife and mother-in-law tried to kill him at Gohira of Raujan two days ago, succumbed to his injuries at Chittagong Medical College Hospital (CMCH) on Saturday night. The deceased was identified as Qatar expatriate Fakhrul Islam, 28, of Mobarakkhil area in the upazila. Jahirul Islam, in-charge of CMCH police outpost, said that Fakhrul's wife Umme Habiba developed an extra-marital affair in absence of her husband. There had been a dispute between two families over the issue.  Later, Umme Habiba divorced her husband. It is alleged that Habiba and her mother Rasheda Akhter called Fakhrul to their house on Thursday evening after his recent return from abroad and at one stage tried to slit his throat. They also took the body to their roof and ignite fire through a gas cylinder in a bid to stage a suicidal incident. Later, being rescued by the neighbours, Fakhrul was admitted to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on Saturday evening. Police arrested Habiba and her mother in this connection on Thursday night.
