A middle-aged man was beaten to death allegedly by his four wives at village Kabirpur under sadar upazila of the district early Tuesday.They were probably all pissed he was still a lowly rickshaw driver.
The deceased was identified as Yunus Bapari, 46, an auto-rickshaw driver and resident of Mulalidaha under sadar upazila.
The police said that at about 11:00pm Monday, Yunus went to a village fair at Brahmankanda near Faridpur town with his two wives where he ran into his third wife that triggered a family row as his first two wives did not know he had a third wife.
At one point the three women came to know that Yunus even had a fourth wife living in another village. The three women then took him to the residence of his fourth wife at Kabirpur where the four women together beat him up mercilessly, locals said.
Yunus was admitted to Faridpur Medical College Hospital in a critical condition where he died at 4:50am. The body was sent to the hospital morgue for post-mortem examination.
This all could have been avoided if he had just gotten the OK from his wives.
Muslim men in Bangladesh are allowed to marry up to four women under Shariah law - but only with the consent of their other wives, according to New Age.Upside: There's an opening for an auto-rickshaw driver. Always look for the silver lining.
