Habiganj Correspondent: A mystery has arisen over the death of a policeman’s wife in Habiganj Sadar Upazila’s Dhuliakhal. Her father and uncle claim their daughter was killed. Meanwhile, after the autopsy, Tania’s body was handed over to her father and relatives at 3pm on Tuesday. On the other hand, her husband, police member Shafiqul Islam, has been kept under police surveillance. He has also been questioned in this regard. He fell ill at 4am on Tuesday and was admitted to Habiganj Sadar Hospital. Fighting has started everywhere over this incident.
After Tarabih prayers last night, Tania’s body was buried at the family graveyard at Bagber village in Kendua upazila of Netrokona district. On Monday afternoon, May 3, a woman doctor declared her dead when her husband Safiqul Islam unloaded his wife Tania’s body from a house near the Dhuliakhal police line. Upon receiving the news, SI Saidur Rahman of Sadar Police Station prepared an inquest report and sent it to Habiganj Sadar Hospital Morgue for autopsy.
On Tuesday morning, Tania’s father Bulbul Mia, uncle Alamgir and other relatives told the police that they were trying to kill their daughter Shafiqul Islam and try to commit suicide. This also created suspicion among the police. Sadar Police Station OC Masuk Ali went to the morgue and saw the body.
Tania’s father and uncle also said that Tania was married to police constable Shafiqul Islam, son of Riaz Uddin of Mornkanda village in the same upazila six months ago. After marriage, Shafiqul used to torture her for various reasons.
Tania used to inform them about the matter over the phone. Shafiqul would even lock Tania when she went out and take away her occasional used phone. On the morning of May 3, Tania told her father on the phone that Shafiqul had beaten her. His phone was found switched off in the afternoon. But Shafiqul did not give the news of Tania’s death. When a person from the next house called and informed them, they came to Habiganj on Tuesday. As a result, their suspicions continue to grow. Tania’s father filed a complaint with the Habiganj Sadar Police Station last night accusing Shafiqul and his brother Rubel and mother Rasheda of killing his daughter for dowry.
