British Woman Hacked to death in Bangladesh for her Jewellery

A British woman has been hacked to death by four men who stole her jewellery while on holiday with her family in Bangladesh.


The 43-year-old from Stepney was on holiday there with her husband and 12-year-old son when she was killed in a violent robbery.

The Foreign Office has confirmed the death of Rehana Begum, in the north-east of the country.

A spokesman said: "We are aware of the death of a British national, Rehana Begum, in Sunamganj, Bangladesh on 2 August.

"We are providing consular assistance to her family at this difficult time."

Her nephew, Abdul, told the BBC that Mrs Begum had been visiting her family in Bangladesh.

He said: "It happened this morning. She has been hacked to death by four people for jewellery and money."

What I find odd about this story is that in Bangladesh that woman would not have been allowed to be out in public without a male escort. If this happened in public, was the male escort safe? I'm assuming it was in public as the motive was said to be jewellery and money, which she would have had on her. If not in public, then members of her family would surely have been with her and these four people burst into the building and attacked only her?

So, who was with her when these 4 people attacked? She would not have been on her own in a strict Islamic country.

Well AnnaEsse , she was visiting family and there must be relaxation for all the Women in Bangladesh who work in Factories , maybe the rule is nightime only, this happened in the daytime.

Definitely more to this case than meets the eye.

I'm not sure AnnaEsse if it's correct that women aren't allowed out alone. This guide for visitors makes no mention of it.

We're certainly better qualified than the ones whom the McCanns have employed and those like Mark Williams-Thomas and Jim Gamble who believe everything the gruesome pair say, no matter how ridiculous it is!
á
A degree from the University of Life is all that's needed.

I've pinched this quote from a poster on the JH site, so thank you to that person. Let's not forget that Mark Williams-Thomas was in Tia Sharp's grandmother's house - making a documentary on the case - all the while that her body was in the loft.

That's a great quotation , I must remember that,á Why doesn't Amaral's case go ahead ? I should imagine the Portugese Police would welcome it and now ST have got 38 "person's of interest" to find and interview it could take years before the case comes to Court ,!!1 If I was Amaral I would be making a formal complaint, the 6 months the Judge said would be given for the parties to find a solution is up I think.

I don't know about women who work in factories. I do have some very good women friends who are Muslim, one of whom has invited me to visit her family in Pakistan with her. I've been told that if I go I will have to cover my head in public and never go out without one of her male relatives. I'm sure it's the same in Bangladesh.

London woman murdered in Bangladesh
A mother from east London has been murdered in Bangladesh.

Rehana Begum, 43, a British national from Stepney, died in Sunamganj on Friday, the Foreign Office has confirmed.

On Friday morning a man who said he was a family member phoned the BBC to say she had been killed for her valuables.

But local police have since told a BBC journalist the murder investigation is focusing on her family and whether there was a rejected marriage proposal.

Nazrul Hossen, Police Super of Sunamganj district, said when the victim disagreed in principle with that proposal, she may have been attacked with knives and hit on the head.

Police said she "died on the spot due to excessive bleeding".

'Hacked to death'
Nobody has been arrested, but Mr Hossen said police were trying to find the culprits as soon as possible and said a murder case had been filed.

Earlier in the day, a man claiming to be a family member said Mrs Begum had been on holiday in the country with her husband and 12-year-old son since 17 July.

The man, who was calling from the south Asian country, said: "She came to Bangladesh to visit her family.

"She has been hacked to death by four people for jewellery and money."

A Foreign & Commonwealth Office spokeswoman said: "We are aware of the death of a British national Rehana Begum in Sunamganj, Bangladesh on 2 August.

"We are providing consular assistance to her family at this difficult time."

I know I should not put two and two together too quickly but I'm thinking that the "marriage proposal" related to another wife for the husband.

Yes, I'm wondering about that proposal. Someone wanting a promise of marriage for the 12 year-old son? Does the woman have a daughter who didn't accompany them? This story struck me immediately as very odd. And yes, another, younger wife for the husband?

Rehana Begum: Arrest over woman's murder in Bangladesh

Police in Bangladesh have arrested a man over the murder of a mother from east London.

Rehana Begum, 43, a British national from Stepney, was killed in Sunamganj, in the north-east of the country, on Friday.

Local police told the BBC in Bangladesh they were focusing on the possibility of a rejected marriage proposal within the family.

Bashir Mia was arrested on Saturday afternoon.

Bangladeshi Police said he was a male relative of the victim's husband and they suspect he was the planner of the attack.


Stabbed to death
Officers continue to hunt another five men.

A post-mortem examination of Ms Begum on Friday evening found she was stabbed.

She has since been buried in her home village of Jagannathpur, in the Sunamganj province.

On Friday, a man claiming to be a family member told BBC London she had been on holiday in the country with her husband and 12-year-old son since 17 July.

The man, who was calling from the south Asian country, said: "She came to Bangladesh to visit her family.

"She has been hacked to death by four people for jewellery and money."

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said it was providing consular assistance to Mrs Begum's family.
