A 50-year-old woman was hacked to death allegedly by her daughter-in-law over a family feud in Kathalia village of Barishal's Bakerganj upazila on Wednesday night.
The deceased was identified as Nazneen Begum, wife of Hanif Hawladar of the village.
Alauddin Milon, officer-in-charge of Bakerganj Police Station, said Laboni Akter and her mother-in-law lived in their village house "while Nazneen’s two sons stay and work in Dhaka".
Around 10.30pm, Ujjal, the elder son of Nazneen, made a phone call to his mother. As no one received the call, Ujjal requested his uncle Kalam Hawladar to visit their house. When Kalam reached the house, he found Nazneen lying in a pool of blood.
On information, police recovered the body and arrested Laboni. "We are investigating the murder. However, we suspect family feud behind the crime,” said the OC.
