Man gets life term for killing wife, child in Dhaka 

DHAKA, June 11, 2024 (BSS)-A court here today convicted and sentenced a man to life imprisonment in a case lodged over the murder of his wife and a seven-month-old daughter at Ashulia in Dhaka district in 2009.
Dhaka 7th Additional District and Sessions Judge Md Masrur Salekin passed the judgment, sentencing Md Kawser alias Faruk to life imprisonment. 
The court in its verdict said that though the convict deserved the highest punishment, Kawser is being given life imprisonment as he has been languishing in jail since his arrest in 2009.
Son of Amirul Islam of village Bidyadhorpur of Kotchandpur upazila of Jhendaidah, Kawser was living with his wife Shilpi Akter and daughter Farhin at Kathal Tola area of Jamgora, Ashulia. He was involved in an illicit relationship and used to fight with his wife over it frequently.
On the night of November 16, 2009, as Shilpi went to sleep with her seven-month-old daughter Farhin, Kawser hacked Shilpi to death. To make this a fire incident and hide all the shreds of evidence, Kawser set Shilpi’s body on fire, burning their daughter, who was asleep beside her mother, to death alive. 
Neighbours, however, managed to nab Kawser as he was trying to flee and handed him over to police. 

Shilpi’s brother Sumon filed the case with Ashulia Police Station the next day.
