Daughter bags death sentence for killing parents in Bangladesh

A Dhaka Court on Thursday sentenced a 20-year-old girl to death for killing her parents two years ago, officials said.

Judge Sayeed Ahmed handed down the verdict against Oishee Rahman for killing her police officer father Mahfuzur Rahman and mother Swapna Rahman in August 2013, prosecutor Mohammad Rahman said.

The court also sentenced one of her friends to two years in prison for her role in the murder.

Police recovered the couple's bodies two days later and their daughter surrendered at the police station the day after that.

Defence lawyer Faruk Ahmed said his client would challenge the verdict in a higher court.
