A local court today sentenced a man named Atowar Rahman, 40, to death for killing his wife in Gaibandha.

Senior District and Sessions Judge Dilip Kumar Bhowmik handed down the verdict on Thursday (May 19) at noon. The accused was present in the court when the verdict was announced. 

Public Prosecutor (PP) Farooq Ahmed Prince confirmed the matter.

He said Atowar Rahman, son of late Riazul Akand of Satirjan village, got married to Anwara Begum of Kanchibari village of Gaibandha's Sundarganj upazila 16 years back. After marriage, Atowar often tortured Anwara Begum physically and mentally for dowry.  

Following this, on the night of January 6, 2019, Atowar hit Anwara Begum on the head with an iron rod leaving her seriously injured. He then strangled Anwara Begum with a scarf and left her in the backyard.
