Man sentenced to death for killing woman
A court in Khulna on Wednesday noon convicted a man and sentenced him to death for killing a woman in Dighalia upazila of the district in 2014.
Convict Rafiqul Islam, a resident of Chandani Mahal village in the upazila, was a worker at Crescent Jute Mill.
Khulna district and sessions court judge Md Moshiur Rahman delivered the verdict, said public prosecutor (PP) Kazi Abu Shahin.
The prosecutor said Rafiq sought Tk 5,000 as borrow from Halima Begum, wife of co-villager Zinnat Ali Sheikh, on 17 September 2014. But Halima denied lending the money that led Rafiq to strangulate her to death.
Later, Zinnat Ali filed a case against Rafik with Dighalia Police Station in this connection.
