The body, hands, and legs of a housewife named Rabina Khatun (25) were burnt in the fire set by her husband in Dhunte, Bogra. Meanwhile, Momin Talukder (30), a heretic, tortured her husband by keeping him at home without any treatment even though he was burnt by the fire set by her husband. Finally, with the help of the locals, the housewife has rescued from her husband’s custody five days later and her relatives admitted her to Dhunat Hospital.

The incident took place at Dighalkandi village in the Chowkibari union of Dhunat Upazila.

On Wednesday (March 24), the housewife’s father Hossain Ali filed a written complaint with the Dhunat police station accusing his son-in-law Momin Talukder.

According to allegations and local sources, Momin Talukder, son of late Samad Talukder of the same village, got married to Rabina Khatun, daughter of poor farmer Hasan Ali of Dighalkandi Dakshinpara village in Dhunat Upazila about 10 years ago. They have two sons and a daughter. But for 3/4 years Momin Talukder has been torturing Rabina Khatun physically and mentally for no reason. Momin Talukder did not stop his torture even though there was more than one local arbitration on these issues.

In this situation, at around 7 pm on March 17, at one stage of the fight, Momin set fire to the body of Rabina Khatun with the torch used for fishing. It burned some parts of his body and left arm and left leg. On hearing the news, Rabina Khatun’s relatives went to rescue her, but her pagan husband Momin stopped them and kept them at home. In such a situation, Robina was fighting to the death for five days without any treatment due to her husband’s torture.

On March 22, Rabina Khatun could not bear the pain of death and when she tried to go to the doctor herself, her husband Momin beat her again. After receiving the news, Rabina Khatun was rescued from her husband’s custody with the help of local people and her relatives admitted her to Dhunat Upazila Health Complex. On Wednesday (March 24), the housewife’s father Hossain Ali filed a written complaint against his son-in-law Momin Talukder at Dhunat police station.

Rabina Khatun’s father Hossain Ali said, “Momin often tortures my daughter.” At one point he set fire to her body to kill my daughter. It burns different parts of my daughter’s body. Even then, Momin kept my daughter in the house without any treatment and tortured her.

Later, with the help of local people, I rescued my daughter and admitted her to Dhunat Hospital. I have lodged a written complaint with the Dhunat police station accusing the heretic son-in-law Momin of the incident. He demanded a rigorous trial of the incident.

Dhunat Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Kripa Sindhu Bala said the housewife’s treatment was investigated after receiving the news. The matter will be investigated and necessary action will be taken.
