A bench of Justice Md Abdul Hye and Justice Krishna Debnath has given the ‘carte blanche’ on Tuesday.

The convict has been identified as Md Akbar Ali, who hails from Gopinathpur village in Shahjadpur Upazila of Sirajganj.

On August 23, 2009 Sirajganj District Judge Biplob Goswami had awarded him the death penalty.

Akbar appealed to the appellate division of the High Court against the verdict. Another plea seeking execution of his death penalty was also placed before the High Court.

In the Court, Deputy Attorney General Md Moniruzzaman Rubel represented the state while the defence was represented by Yusuf Hossain Humayun.

Ayesha's father filed a case against his son-in-law over the incident.

Deputy Attorney General Md Moniruzzaman Rubel said,"This is an exceptional verdict. There are enough evidences that Akbar threw acid on his wife. Akbar also failed to prove his innocence or that his crime is trivial before the court. So, the Court upheld the death penalty."
