On Monday night, an elderly woman was found dead at her son’s abode in Parnurulabad village of Naogaon’s Manda upazila.
The deceased was recognized as Aklima Begum, 60. Police have detained her son’s wife for questioning.
“My husband is a microbus driver in Dhaka”, Laili Begum, the daughter-in-law of the deceased, said. ‘ My mother-in-law shared an apartment with my brother-in-law. On Thursday I brought her to our house.’
‘ I had gone to see my parents, so she was alone in the house for a few days. After returning home on Monday, I saw the door locked from the outside. Later with the help of neighbours, I was able to open the door, but found her body lying in a pool of blood,’ she said.
Shahinur Rahman, Manda police officer-in-charge said that the daughter-in-law of the deceased has been held for questioning in connection with the death.
