A case has been filed against Assistant Proctor Din Islam and a student Amman Siddique of Jagannath University (JnU) in connection with the suicide of the university’s law student Fairuz Abontika.

Firoz Hossain, officer-in-charge of Comilla Kotwali Model police station, confirmed the matter on Saturday night.

Abontika's mother Tahmina Shabnam filed the case at 8pm.

According to the case statement, Amman Siddique harassed her daughter sexually on online and offline platforms. JnU Assistant Procter Din Islam abused her verbally when Abontika informed him about the matter.

“We will determine the next course of actions after discussing with our senior officers. Appropriate actions will be taken against the culprits through proper investigation,” said the OC.

Meanwhile, Detective Branch (DB) of police of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has detained Assistant Proctor Din Islam and a student Amman Siddique of Jagannath University (JnU) in connection with the suicide.

DMP Commissioner Habibur Rahman confirmed the matter on Saturday night.

He said that these two people were kept under surveillance after the death of the university student. They are now in police custody.

However, the DMP Commissioner did not say where and when the detectives took them into their custody.

Teacher Din Islam, who was named by Jagannath University student Fairuz Sadaf Abontika as one of two persons responsible for her death before committing suicide on Friday, tried to explain his position by releasing a statement on Saturday.

Fairuz Abontika, a student of the 2017-18 academic year of Jagannath University (JnU) Law Department, hanged herself at her Comilla residence after accusing her classmate Amman and the assistant proctor of the university in a Facebook post around 10pm on Friday.

Meanwhile, the university administration relieved Assistant Proctor Din Islam from his duty and suspended classmate Amman Siddique.

Besides, the university administration has formed a four-member probe committee.

In her Facebook post before committing suicide, Fairuz Abontika said that her classmate Amman Siddique and Assistant Proctor Din Islam would be responsible for her suicide.

“If I ever die by suicide, my classmate Amman Siddiqui and Assistant Proctor Din Islam, who supported him, will be solely responsible for my death. I complained to the proctor's office that Amman was threatening me offline and also online but I did not get any benefit. Din Islam scares me in many ways for the sake of Amman. He said that expelling me is very easy for him. I know I will not get any justice here,” she wrote.
