A court in Kushtia has found a 30-year-old man guilty of murdering his wife four years ago.
In February 2013, Snigdha Akter Rimi, who went to the Kushtia Government College, was strangled to death at the district's Mirpur Upazila.
On Monday, the court of Kushtia's Chief Judicial Magistrate ordered death sentence for the husband Shihab Uddin Shishir, who has been absconding after securing bail.
According to court documents, Sishir and second-year History student Rimi got married in 2011 without informing their families following a relationship.
Prosecutor Anup Kumar Nandi said that Shishir strangled Rimi to death on Feb 13, 2013 at a relative's house in Kushtia's Mirpur Upazila.
Shishir was arrested a month later from Tangail and confessed before a judge.
He later secured bail and has been absconding since then, said Prosecutor Nandi.
