Husband Chops Off Wife’s Fingers So She Can’t Study For A Degree

Because of jealousy of what she may achieve, a husband cut the fingers of his wife.
Rafiqul Islam, 30, is now facing the cold steel bars after he cut the five fingers of her wife, 21-year-old Hawa Akhter so she could not study for a degree.
Islam, a migrant worker in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), went back to Bangladesh, had earlier warned her of the “grave consequences” that she will be facing if she did not give up her studies.
After he came back from Bangladesh, he blindfolded her saying he has a gift for her, tied her hands but cut her fingers off. He then threw them in the dustbin so doctors won’t have chances to stitch them back.
“After he came back to Bangladesh, he wanted to have a discussion with me,” said Akhter. “Suddenly, he blindfolded me and tied my hand. He also taped my mouth saying that he would give me some surprise gifts. But, instead he cut off my fingers.”
Bangladesh Police chief Mohammed Saluddin said Islam confessed after he was arrested. He will be facing charges of permanent disfiguration. Human rights activists are pushing for life imprisonment.
Akhter is now trying to learn how to write using her left hand. The attack won’t stop her from studying.
