Sunday, 29 August 2010

The dead body of an Eden College student was found "hanging from a fan" at her in law's house.

Ashulia Police Station officer-in-charge Sirazul Islam said the body of Salma Akter Santa, 22, was recovered from her in-law's house at Savar's Jamgora in Ashulia on Saturday at around 5pm.

Shata's family - who live in the same neighborhood - has claimed that her in-law's family hung her from a ceiling fan after murdering her.

Shanta's mother Shahnaz Parvin said her daughter was a student of English (Honours 2nd year).

She told bdnews24.com that Shanta's marriage with Farid Alam who lives in Saudi Arabia was held last month, and since then, her husband has been demanding a dowry of Tk 2 lakhs.

She said her brother Chan Mia informed her on Saturday that Shanta was ill. "We went to Shanta's in-law house but found the residence empty, doors and windows closed," she added.

"With help of neighbouring people, we broke the door and found Shanta dangling from the fan," she said.

Sirazul Islam said the body had been sent to Dhaka Medical College for autopsy.

A case has been filed with Ashulia Police Station over the death.
