Merina, the wife of Kazi Shoeb Rashid, is undergoing treatment at the ICU in Dhanmondi’s Labaid Hospital.
“Marina shot herself in the abdomen at her Dhanmondi residence at around 9:30 pm, using her husband’s licensed pistol,” said Abdullah Kafi, Additional Police Super of Dhanmondi police station.
“Her husband was not present at home that time, but their conjugal relation was not good,” he added.
