A court here on Tuesday awarded life term imprisonment to a housewife for torturing an 11-year-old domestic help and dumping her into a dustbin assuming her dead in Dhaka in September 2013.
The convict was Nawrin Jahan.
Judge Jayasree Samaddar of the Third Tribunal for Prevention of Women and Children Repression handed down the verdict in presence of the accused after examining the witnesses and case records.
The court also fined the convict, Nawrin Jahan, Tk 1 lakh. The money will be handed over the victim’s family.
The court also acquitted Narwin’s mother from the charge as allegation brought against her was not proved.
Soon after the judgment, Aduri, now 15, expressed satisfaction over the verdict.
On September 26, 2013, the case was filed with Pallabi Police Station accusing Nawrin and her mother of torturing Aduri inhumanly. Police on the same day arrested Nawrin.
Aduri was found unconscious in a severely malnourished state, riddled with injuries and scars near a dustbin in the capital’s DOHS Baridhara on September 23, 2013.
