The suspect turned himself to police after the murder in Feni town
A man in Feni has streamed killing his wife on Facebook Live before turning himself to the law enforcers.
After hacking his wife Tahmina Akhter to death at his home in the district town on Wednesday, Obaidul Haque Tutul called the police, said Inspector (investigations) Sajedul Islam of the Feni Model police station.
Tutul was arrested from his home at the Uttar Barahipur neighbourhood of the town and police seized the murder weapon, a machete, as well as the suspect’s mobile phone.
Preliminary investigations found the incident to be an aftermath of a family feud, said Inspector Islam. “We will further investigate into the incident. In the meantime, the woman’s body has been sent to a local hospital for autopsy.”
The couple, who got married five years ago after dating for five years, has a one-and-a-half-year-old daughter, victim’s sister Rehana Akhter told the media.
They often locked in arguments over financial matters, she said before adding Tutul, who worked for a Dhaka-based private firm, had borrowed money from his in-laws, but demanded more even before paying it back.
