Police have arrested the killer Majid. Marufa Begum has filed a case against her husband for killing her daughter.
According to the statement, Majid is in dispute with his elder brother Rashid Mollah over 15 katha of shared property. He tried to trap his ignorant child by throwing it in his elder brother’s pond.
Marufa Begum, the plaintiff in the case, said that on March 30, her husband Majid and brother-in-law Rashid had a quarrel over land. From then on, she (husband) used to move around anxiously. On the evening of the incident, Matikata came home after work and sent me with her son Nayan to buy medicine at the local Tafalbari market. At that time I left my daughter Nabisha and four-month-old anklet with my husband. In that gap, Mejha left her daughter at a neighbour’s house, threw Nupur in her brother-in-law Rashid Mollah’s pond and returned home.
She said that when she came with the medicine and wanted to know if she could find Nupur, her husband kept talking incoherently. At one stage, he said, the girl fell into the pond after colliding with a tree in the dark on the way to her elder brother Rashid’s house with Nupur. Upon hearing this, he ran and rescued the girl from the pond and took her to Sharankhola Hospital, where the doctors declared her dead.
In this regard, Rashid Mollah said, Majid left his daughter in my pond after trapping me. But the police can understand the real facts by listening to him.
