A relative of a 25-year-old young man allegedly slit his wrists over an extramarital affair with his aunt at Noakanda in Palash upazila of Narsingdi district.
The victim was identified as Hadiul Mia, son of Morshed Mia of Shibpur upazila of the district.
Md Elias, officer-in-charge of Palash Police Station, said Hadiul developed an extra marital affair with his aunt.
When the families of Hadiul and his aunt came to know of their relationship, they often got into arguments.
Jalal Mia, brother-in-law of Hadiul’s aunt, did not take the matter easily and he called Hadiul at his home promising to give him a job on Monday evening.
When Hadiul took the bait, Jalal took Hadiul to an abandoned place, slit his wrists and fled the scene.
Hearing Hadiul's cries, locals people rescued him and took him to Narsingdi District Hospital from where he was shifted to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital for better treatment.
