A housewife named Polly Akhter (22) has allegedly tried to cut her throat after a year of marriage by falling in love in Madan of Netrokona.
Polly Akhter’s father Rashid Mia has lodged a written complaint against her husband Russell Mia for slitting his throat. He lodged the complaint at Madan police station on Wednesday afternoon.
According to the complaint, Russell Mia, son of Abdul Karim of Purba Jahangirpur village in Madan Municipality’s 8th ward, fell in love with Polly Akhter, daughter of Rashid Mia of Barivadera village, a year ago and got married through a court. Within days, her husband Russell and her parents were constantly pressuring Polly to bring her dowry money from her father’s house.
The level of torture on the poor parents is increasing day by day when it is not possible to pay the dowry. In the wake of this, when he was pressured again to bring the dowry money on Tuesday night, Polly tried to kill him by hitting him on the neck with a knife.
At that time, the people of the area rushed to his rescue and rescued him from the house and admitted him to Madan Hospital. He has multiple bruises on his neck.

From then on, I was often beaten and tortured for bringing money from my father’s house.
