Two get life term for acid attack
A tribunal here on Thursday convicted two people and awarded them life term imprisonment for throwing acid on a woman.
Things appear to be changing dramatically in Bangladesh. What happened?
The JMB and related cadres were sucked into the BDR mess. That really shook the government so they've taken the gloves off. The RAB and the regular army are causing cardiac arrests all over the country. And Sheikh Hasina, bless her cold, dark little heart, has had the courage to make sure the islamicists, the JMB and the Pak sympathizers get thumped.
The convicts are Joynal Sawdagar, 40, and his accomplice Yusuf Ali, 30, of Madhabpur village in Sadar upazila. According to the prosecution, Joynal went to his father-in-law's house at Sheoladanga village in the same upazila on May 14, 2005 along with his accomplice Yusuf and threw acid on his wife Sabina Begum, 25, following a family feud. Local people caught Joynal red handed. A case was filed.

After examining the records and witnesses, Special Tribunal Judge Nazir Ahmed handed down the verdict.
