Ashtami Baury (28), a mother of two, killed her husband in Kamalganj of Moulvibazar after she became addicted to foreigners. Locals arrested Selim Mia, 30, and Ashtami Baury in the same house at Phulbari Tea Garden in the upazila on Thursday (July 29) morning and handed them over to police. At that time, the locals saw Ashtami’s husband Vijay Baury (40) unconscious on the floor. After informing the doctor of the tea garden, the doctor came at ৬ am and declared him dead. Police recovered the body of the deceased Vijay Baury.
According to local sources, Selim Mia, son of Chan Mia of the same garden, secretly fell in love with Ashtami Bauri. Selim Mia entered the room on Thursday morning. The family members sensed the matter and informed Bagan Panchayat President Manu Ranjan Pal. Later, the people of the tea garden detained Ashtami Bauri and Selim from their house in an abusive situation. Leaving the body at home, the detained couple informed the Kamalganj police station. A team of Kamalganj police recovered the body at 8.30 am and arrested the couple. Police recovered sleeping pills from the side of the body while preparing the Surtal report. Locals speculated that the wife may have died due to taking sleeping pills with food at night.
