Jessore: A housewife was beaten to death allegedly by her husband over extramarital affairs at Bakchar in the district town on Saturday night.
The deceased was identified as Bijli, 22, wife of Golam Morshed.
Victim’s maternal uncle Bazlur Rashid said Bijli, daughter of Billal Hosain of Birampur of the town, was married off with Golam Morshed about four years back.
Morshed used to torture Bijli mentally and physically since their marriage as she protested her husband’s alleged illicit affair with the wife of his elder brother.
On the fateful night, Bijli had an altercation again with her husband over the issue.
At one stage, Morshed beat up Bijli to death and hung her body from a ceiling in their bedroom for concealing the murder.
Later, Morshed took Bijli to Jessore 250-Bed Hospital where doctors declared her dead.
Morshed’s family members claimed that Bijli committed suicide by hanging herself.
Police said they have found injury marks on the victim’s body.
