    A young housewife was stabbed to death allegedly by her husband for dowry at Komalpur village in Chouddagram upazila this (Sunday) morning.

    The victim was identified as Rezia Akhter Ria, 22, wife of Moazzem Hossain Sumon of the village.

    Police and locals said Ria, daughter of Sekandar Bhuiyan of Baingpai village in the upazila, was married off with Sumon about two years back.

    Sumon used to torture Ria, mother of a six-month-old baby, to bring dowry money from her father since their marriage.

    On Saturday night, the couple locked into an altercation over the issue.

    In a sequel to the brawl, Sumon stabbed Ria indiscriminately with a sharp weapon while she was asleep in her bedroom at about 5am, killing her on the spot.

    Hearing the hue and cry neighbours rushed in and caught Sumon red-handed. Later, he was handed over to police.

    Police recovered the body and sent it to hospital morgue for autopsy.

    Sharmin Akhter, sister of the victim, filed a murder case with local police in this connection.
