The mountaineer, who was also a teacher at Ayub Ali Government Primary School near Dhaka’s New Market, was buried in her village at Lohagara, Narail, on Saturday morning.

Reshma's brother-in-law, Mohammad Monir Hossain, filed the case for Reshma’s death with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police station on Friday afternoon. 

Monir said Reshma had been a vocal proponent of road safety on social media and rode a bicycle as it was pollution free.

She also completed training at the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering in Uttarakhand, India, said her local trainer Mir Shamsul Alam Babu.

He said Reshma had been planning to climb Mount Everest. She climbed over 6,000 feet in Ladakh, India, a few months ago.

Besides mountaineering, she was also interested in marathons and cycling.
