A three-year-old girl in the city was stabbed with a knife yesterday by her father's supposed girlfriend, jilted by the man and hell-bent on revenge.
The woman, a nurse of a private clinic at the capital's Dhanmondi, turned up at the residence of her boyfriend on Crescent Road of Kalabagan yesterday around 10:00am and stabbed the kid in the neck and throat.
Kalabagan police with the help of locals arrested the nurse, Bilkis Khatun Nadia, and recovered the knife from her possession.
The girl, Labonya Akhter, was taken by neighbours to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where doctors gave her 22 stitches. Doctors said she was now out of danger.
Labonya's father Abdul Matin is the assistant director of a pharmaceutical company at Dhanmondi.
Bilkis, a diploma in nursing from Rangpur, confessed to the stabbing.
Talking to The Daily Star at Kalabagan Police Station, she said she had entered the Crescent Road house with a plan to kill Matin's wife and their two minor children.
She hatched the conspiracy moments after around 11:00pm of Sunday when Matin backtracked from his decision to marry her.
She identified herself as a colleague of Matin to pass the security of the six-storey building. Matin and his family live on the second floor.
Labonya's mother Rita Shabnam told this correspondent, she was out at the time of the incident and her mobile phone was inactive.
Laila, the domestic help of the house, opened the door after Bilkis pressed the calling bell, Shabnam quoted Laila as saying.
Entering the house she asked Laila, who was cuddling Matin's younger son 10-year-old Aronya, to fetch a glass of water. Labonya was in the drawing room.
When Laila went to bring water, Bilkis took Labonya to the bedroom and hit her with the knife.
Hearing Labonya's scream, her uncle Azad Patwari, who was in washroom, came out and caught hold of Bilkis.
The domestic help went to the neighbours and called for help. They rushed to the flat immediately.
Bilkis said it was two years ago when she went to refill her mobile phone credit, Abdul Matin was seated there and collected her number.
At night, the man rang her, introducing himself as a Dhaka University student, and wanted to start a relationship with her. She gave consent after six months.
In April this year, they together went on a three-day trip to Cox's Bazar.
Matin, however, hid the fact that he is married and has two children. He told her that he lived in the house with his mother.
A few days back, Bilkis found pictures of his two children in Matin's mobile phone set. Asked by her, he admitted that he is married and has two children.
However, Bilkis agreed to accept Matin's marital life and at one stage, he promised to marry her.
Enamul Haque Enam, officer-in-charge of Kalabagan Police Station, told this correspondent that they were probing into the incident.
Approached for comments at DMCH, Labonya's father declined to say anything.
