A pregnant woman has died after her husband forced her to undergo abortion.
Humaira Begum, d/o Sultan was forced by her husband to take the pills and other medicine after eight months pregnancy.
Muslims in Arakan are legally not allowed to have more than two children. Saudia has more than that from his three previous marriages.
Earlier, the man known as ‘Saudia’ married Humaira against her will more than a year back.
Saudia is an influential tabbe at Hashurata, Maungdaw South.
Saudia told Humaira that unless she married her, her male relatives will be tortured by police. He repeated the same threat after eight months of pregnancy.
When Humaira took the pills, she started bleeding. The child died at the time.
Humaira died almost two months later on Monday.
