Police arrested fugitive Md Rajib (35) in connection with the murder of his wife Nargis Begum (23) in Kalapara of Patuakhali. On Monday night at about 10:30 p.m. Kalapara Thana police and RAB members arrested him from Mahishkata village of neighboring Amtali upazila in a joint operation.
Earlier on Saturday night, police recovered the body of housewife Nargis Begum (23), daughter of Md. Anwar Hossain and wife of Rajib, mother of one child from Lemupara village of the upazila and sent it to Patuakhali Medical College Hospital for post-mortem. The deceased housewife has a one-and-a-half-year-old baby daughter. Since the deceased housewife had a black mark on her neck and her husband was absconding, police suspected it to be murder since the incident.
