Balasore (Orissa): A woman and her three brothers were sentenced to life imprisonment by a fast track court here for killing her husband at Astia village in Orissa's Balasore district.

Additional session judge R K Sahu convicted and awarded life term to Salima Bibi (28) and her brothers Sattar Khan, Mahimud Khan and Mansur Khan yesterday for the murder of Gulam Rasul (32) on October 23, 2008.

According to prosecution, Gulam Rasul had married Salima Bibi of Astia village under Balasore Sadar police station. But due to frequent quarrel between the couple, Salima was staying in her paternal house.

On October 23, 2008 Gulam went to his father-inlaw's place to take her back but his wife Salima and her three brothers killed the man and threw the body in a septic tank in their house.

A missing report was lodged with police by his uncle but the police then could not trace him. However, after some days when stench started emanating, villagers called the police and Gulam's decomposed body was found.
