Two-and-half year old abused by stepmother dies at DMCH

A two-and-a-half-year-old, who was allegedly abused by her stepmother in Gazipur, died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital after fighting for her life for a month.

Marium Akter was the daughter of Mostafa Kamal, a Dubai-based worker, and was undergoing treatment at DMCH over the last month. According to Mohammad Ali Jinnah (sub-inspector at Sreepur Police Station), she died yesterday around 6:30pm.

Afaz Uddin, Mostafa Kamal’s father, filed a case against Alifa Akter Ripsa (30) with Sreepur Police Station. He claimed that Akter Ripa abused the child in order to put pressure on her husband to transfer ownership of a multistorey building in Sreepur.

Mostafa, who has lived in Dubai for 13 years, was married to Marium’s mother Sabina Yasmin 8 years ago, according to our Gazipur correspondent, quoting family members.

He built a five-storey building within the Sreepur area.

Mostafa met Ripa in Dubai and they got married. Marium was just four months old when he divorced his first wife, according to the family.

Mostafa, upon his return to Dubai, left Marium under Ripa's care in Sreepur.

According to the SI of Sreepur Police Station SI, Marium was tortured. He also had surgery for infections from injuries. Ripa is currently in police custody, said he.
