Woman commits suicide after killing daughter

A mother allegedly committed suicide after strangulating her two-year-old daughter to death at her Sabujbagh residence in Dhaka today.

Police identified the deceased as Shantona Begum, 22, wife of Mamun, and her child Mahfuza, said Officer-in-charge of Sabujbagh Police Station Abul Kuddus Fakir.

Shantona might have taken her own life by hanging herself from a ceiling fan as her husband eloped with her younger sister two days before earlier, the OC said.

Later, they were rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) where doctors declared them dead.
