A newlywed housewife was beaten to death allegedly by her in-laws over family feud at Deogaon village in Sadar upazila early Thursday.

The deceased was identified as Sushila Rani, 20, wife of Bipul Chandra of the village.

Victim’s family said Sushila has married off to Bipul barely two and half months ago and since then, Bipul had been torturing her as she protested his alleged ‘extramarital affairs and drug addiction’.

Victim’s sister said the body of Sushila was found in a toilet of Bipul’s house in the morning. The body was bleeding and it bore multiple injury marks on her cheek, throat, and forehead, she claimed.

Officer-in-charge (OC) of Sadar Police Station Mostafizur Rahman said the body was sent to Sadar Hospital for an autopsy.

“The reason behind the death will be cleared after getting the post-mortem report,” he said.
