A 33-year-old woman stabbed her husband to death in Jhalakathi’s Rajapur area early Monday, and then called 999 to surrender to police.

The deceased was identified as Rabiul Awal Talukder, 39, an auto-rickshaw driver in Patuakhali area, reports UNB.

Safia Khatun called the hotline, 999, to surrender to the law after killing her husband.

Emergency service call operator Constable Ikramul, who received the call, immediately reported the matter to Rajapur police station.

Upon receiving the news, a team of police rushed to the spot and arrested Safia, a mother of two.

"Safia gave her husband sleeping pills first to make him unconscious and later stabbed him to death," said Pulak Chandra Roy, officer-in-charge of Rajapur police station.

Safia suspected that her husband had remarried and could kill her at any moment. She killed her husband out of suspicion and fear,  according to primary interrogation.

The killing was a result of a long and unhappy marriage, added the OC.

A case was filed in this regard, the officer said.
