A man has been accused of pouring acid on his wife at Bhadraghat of Kamarkhand in Sirajganj on Tuesday.
The victim Murshida Khatun, 22, was undergoing treatment at Sirajganj General Hospital since she had been admitted there on Tuesday.
Golam Hossain, victim’s father, said that Murshida was also beaten up by her husband Abu Hanif over dowry related issues.
He said that the family had paid Tk 50,000 to Hanif for building a new home just 15 days ago.
However, Hanif kept asking his in-laws for money every now and then.
Hanif took Tk 30,000 and a tola of gold as dowry during his marriage, said Golam Hossain.
Golam also claimed that he, his wife and two of his brothers were injured when Hanif attacked them during a visit to his daughter at her in-laws’ house after she had been beaten by her husband.
Kamarkhand Police Station officer-in-charge Habibul Islam said that he heard about the incident but was yet to receive a formal complaint.
