A speedy trail tribunal in Rajshahi on Sunday sentenced a man to death for killing his younger sister’s husband at Rajshahi city in 2017.

The convict was identified as Roni Ahmed, 29, son of Habibur Rahman of KD Club area in the city. The tribunal also fined him Tk 10,000, said public prosecutor Entazul Haque Babu.

Another accused Habibur Rahman was acquitted as the murder charge brought against them could not be proved beyond doubt, the PP added.

The prosecution story said Liza Khatun, younger sister of Rony and daughter of Habibur Rahman, married Biplob Hossain of the area despite her brother and father’s disapproval. As the dispute between Roni and her sister’s husband reached its peak, Roni stabbed Biplob to death on March 3, 2017, following an altercation over keeping bricks in front of Roni’s house.

On the following day, Biplob’s elder brother Asad Zaman alias Bulbul filed a murder case with Motihar police station against three persons including Roni and his father Habibur Rahman.

Roni was still absconding, PP added.
