Woman to serve life term for torturing minor

A Dhaka court Tuesday sentenced a housewife to life-term imprisonment for torturing a 11-year-old housemaid and dumping her unconscious body in a dustbin assuming her death in 2013.

"The court found her (housewife) guilty of the charges and fined her Tk 100,000 alongside handing down the life term," a prosecution lawyer told newsmen as Dhaka's 3rd Tribunal for Prevention of Women and Children Repression pronounced the verdict.

He said the court, however, acquitted convicted housewife Nawrin Jahan's mother of abetment charges as both were initially accused of committing the inhuman crime. 

Severely malnourished Aduri, then 11, was found bloodied and bruised and in unconscious condition in a dustbin in capital's DOHS Baridhara area on September 23, 2013.

People in the neighbourhood incidentally rescued Aduri and arranged her treatment while police said she was now studying at a madrasah in her hometown Patuakhali.
