Moumita, 20, was reportedly shoved off the roof of the building she resided in

Police have detained a young man in connection with the death of a Bangladeshi expatriate university student in Dhaka.

Tazrian Mostafa Khan Moumita, 19, was reportedly pushed off the roof of the seven-storey building she resided in, leading to her death.

On Friday afternoon, her body was found lying on the road beside the building around 5pm. She was immediately taken to Green Life Medical College Hospital, where the doctors pronounced her dead.

Kalabagan police took Adnan, a resident of the same building on Road 2 of Dhanmondi-8, into custody late on Friday night, hours after she expired.

Confirming the matter, Kalabagan police station Officer-in-Charge Paritosh Chandra said police would be able to shed light on the matter after an autopsy and the primary investigation.

The deceased’s family was yet to file a case, he added. 

According to the victim's family, Adnan used to frequently "harass" Moumita. 

Originally from Tangail, Moumita  was a student at Malaysia’s Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation and used to live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with her family.

They came to Bangladesh a few months ago.

Moumita’s uncle Md Humayun Kabir said they used to live on the fourth floor of the building and she went to the roof around 5pm on Friday, minutes before she was found lying on the road.

“Upon their return to Bangladesh, they rented a flat in the building. The son of a neighbour started stalking her from then on,” he said.

The matter was reported to the parents of the accused. They finally sat with Moumita’s parents, but the meeting yielded no results, said Humayun Kabir.

“Moumita’s parents suspect that that boy might have pushed her off the roof in a fit of anger. But we want a fair probe into the death. A case will be filed after her burial,” he concluded

Sohel Mahmud, who performed her autopsy, said injury marks had been found on the victim’s body.

“It seems she died with her face to the ground,” he said, adding the actual reason for the death might unfold once the post-mortem report was received. 

Her viscera test and DNA profiling were underway, added the physician.
