Thane: A Bangladeshi national, found guilty
on charges of murdering his wife, was sentenced to life
imprisonment by Sessions Court on Saturday.

The accused, Salim Hussain Afsar Ali (25) from Khulana
district of Bangladesh, came to Mumbra in Thane district two
years ago. He married Reena Suman, alias Meena, 27 (also a
Bangladeshi) and had two children from her.

He later learnt that Reena had married another man
earlier when in Bangladesh, and had a child from that
marriage.

Reena worked at a bar in Mumbai, which Salim did not
like.

Angered by the discovery of her first marriage, and her
refusal to quit bar job, he strangulated her on July 5, 2007
at the couple`s Mumbra house, the prosecution said.

Additional Sessions Judge D N Bargande convicted Salim on
the basis of circumstantial evidence.
