A housewife, who attempted to commit suicide by setting her on fire over family feud in Munshiganj on Friday, died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on Tuesday morning.
Deceased Zeasmin, 40, was the wife of Sirazul Islam, a resident of Selamoti village in Sreenagar upazila of the district.
Sreenagar Police Station officer in-charge (OC) Md Yunus Ali said Zeasmin's unemployed husband Sirazul would often torture her physically and mentally demanding dowry Tk 2 lakh.
Unable to bear husband's torture, Zeasmin tried to take her own life by pouring kerosene on her on Friday, leaving her critically injured.
She was first taken to Sreenagar Upazila Health Complex. Later, she was sent to DMCH burn unit as her condition deteriorated, the OC added.
OC Yunus said the woman's brother Seraz Chowdhury lodged a case against Sirazul with the police station.
