Housemaid ‘kills herself’


A female housemaid apparently killed herself at Moghi village in Sadar upazila of Magura on Sunday morning, reports UNB.

The deceased was identified as Sumaiya Khatun Rachana, 14, daughter of Billal Molla of Bashudevpur village in the upazila.

Billal claimed his daughter had been murdered and demanded justice.

Sumaiya had been working at one Sardar’s residence as domestic help for the last seven years. She did not respond when others knocked the door in the morning. Residents of the house broke the door and found her dead, UNB quoted Moghi Union Parishad Chairman Hasna Hena as saying.

Police recovered the body and sent it to the Sadar Hospital for autopsy.
