A Khulna court has sentenced a woman to life imprisonment for killing her infant daughter in the city on August 25, 2015.

The convict is Sharmin, 20, hailing from Senahati village in Dighalia upazila of the district.

The court also fined her Tk 10,000 and in case of failure, she will have to serve six months more in prison, reports UNB.

According to the prosecution, Sumon, easy-bike driver and his wife Sharmin, used to live in a rented house at Khalishpur People's Colony.

On August 25, 2015, Sharmin strangulated her 11-month-old daughter to death over a family feud.

Following the incident, Sumon filed a case against his wife and father-in-law Mizan with Khalishpur Police Station.

After examining all the records, Additional District and Session's Judge Dilruba Sultana handed down the verdict on Thursday.
