Woman ends life in Dinajpur

A 25-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of a speeding train in Dinajpur on Saturday morning.

The deceased was identified as Monowara Begum Biskis, former wife of Monir of the Shoshtitola area near Dinajpur railway station.

Ershadul Haque Bhuiyan, in-charge of Dinajpur Railway Police Station, said that Monowara, a mother of two, had eloped with a man, named Alam, from the same area.

“They went to Dhaka and started working at a garment factory. Just a week ago, they returned to Dinajpur due to domestic unrest. Their relatives failed to resolve the issues through local arbitration,” he said.

Bilkis Begum jumped in front of the Panchagarh-bound Kanchan Express this morning. “Alam has been detained for questioning,” the officer added.
