Rajshahi Metropolitan Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Shabbir Ahmed Sarforaz committed suicide, said doctors of the Forensic Department of Rajshahi Medical College Hospital after conducting an autopsy on Sunday.
Earlier, the inquest report of the forensic department of RMCH also described the death of Shabbir as suicide.
A three-member board of the RMCH Forensic Department, led by Barindra Medical College Professor Mansur Rahman, conducted the autopsy.
The two other members are Islami Bank Medical College Professor Emdudur Rahman and Assistant Professor of the RMCH Forensic Department Enamul Haq.
Enamul said: “A sign of synthetic rope was found on the neck of Shabbir and there was no other sign on his body. Primarily it can be presumed that it is a suicide case.”
After the autopsy, his body was taken to District Police Line premises where a guard of honour was given to him after his namaz-e-janaza. Later, the body was taken to his residence at Upashahar in Rajshahi.
Shabbir will be buried at Tikapara graveyard after another namaz-e-janaza.
The assistant commissioner was found dead sitting on a sofa with a cord tied around his neck at Rajshahi Metropolitan Police (RMP) Officers Mess Hall. The body was discovered around 9am on Saturday.
