Two top Maldivian police officials flew to Rajshahi yesterday to assist Detective Branch of police in probing the death of Raudha Athif, a medical student and model from that country.
Chief Superintendent Mohamed Riyaz and Chief Inspector Ahamed Ali of the Maldivian police landed in Shah Makhdum Airport around 5:00pm, said Rashidul Islam, inspector of Detective Branch (DB) of Rajshahi Metropolitan Police.
They are likely to visit the scene, talk to the girl’s family members and local police officials, he said, adding that they came to the district at the request of Raudha’s family to the Maldivian government via the country’s embassy in Dhaka.
The two police officials were staying at Rajshahi Circuit House.
The police in the Maldives on March 31 tweeted that they were maintaining contact with the family of Raudha and the authorities in Bangladesh. “There have been a lot of speculations in the local media about the ongoing investigation into the death of a Maldivian woman in Bangladesh.”
Raudha, a second-year student of Islami Bank Medical College, was found dead in her room at the women’s dormitory of the college in Nawdapara area of Rajshahi city on March 29.
Her autopsy report said she killed herself by hanging. However, her family members rejected the report and said they were considering seeking a second autopsy.
They keep insisting that it was a murder.
