Police arrested the imam of a local mosque as a female lawyer was found dead at Madhabgul village in Barlekha upazila of Moulvibazar district early Monday, UNB reports.

The deceased was identified as Abida Sultana, wife of Shariful Islam, and a member of District Ainjibi Shamity.

Quoting family members, Yasinul Haque, officer-in-charge of Barlekha Police Station, said Abida used to live in the district town since her marriage and often visited her village home.

On Sunday, Abida went to her village home at Madhabgul and her phone was found switched off since 4 pm on the day.

Worried, her family members rushed to the village and found one of a room of the house locked.

Sensing something wrong, they called in police who broke into the room and recovered Abida’s body around 3 am. 

The body that bore several injury marks was sent to local hospital morgue for autopsy.

It is still not clear what caused the death. 

Meanwhile, police arrested Tanvir Ahmed, imam of the local mosque, and also a tenant of the house, from Baruna in Srimangal upazila, at noon, for his suspected involvement in the incident, said Abdu Salek, officer-in-charge of Srimangal Police Station.

Members of District Ainjibi Samity staged demonstrations demanding punishment of those responsible for the murder.

They also brought out a procession on the court premises to press home their demand.
