The 25-year-old victim is survived by two daughters and husband Kamal Hossain, who works in Saudi Arabia.

According to sources, Sharmin informed her husband about Mahbul repeatedly harassing and blackmailing her.

This resulted in arguments between the couple.

Unable to bear this, the victim eventually ended her life.
