A woman was allegedly killed by her husband over a family feud in the Manda area of the capital's Mugda in the early hours of Saturday.
The victim was identified as Nargis Akhtar, 34, wife of rickshaw puller Rezaul Haque, 40, of Noakhali district.
Abdul Aziz, sub-inspector (SI) of Mugda police station, said Nargis Akhtar and her husband Rezaul used to live in a rented house in North Manda of Mugda while their three children stay in the village.
On Friday midnight, one of her children made a phone call to their mother. As no one received the call, a relative came to the house on Saturday morning and found the door locked from the outside.
