Man gets life-term for killing wife in Naogaon

A court in Naogaon on Tuesday sentenced a man to life-term imprisonment for killing his wife one year back in Manda upazila of the district.  Judge of Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal M Sariful Islam gave the verdict against Lokman Hossain, 45, a resident of Elenga village of the upazila.

The prosecution story, in brief, is that Lokman used to torture his wife Sefali Begum for dowry. He tortured her to death for the same reason on January 4, 2016, a court official said.

Jalal Uddin, brother of the victim, filed a case with Manda Police Station accusing Lokman. Police, after investigation, submitted the charge-sheet before the court against him. Later, the judge, after examining the witnesses and evidence, found him guilty and handed down the punishment.
