Nepal calls for ‘further probe’ into Binisha’s death
The Nepal embassy in Dhaka has requested Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) to ‘investigate further’ into the death of Binisha Shah, the Nepalese dental student who had reportedly committed suicide at her dormitory room last week. The request was made on Sunday before Binisha’s brother Narendra Shah escorted her body back home on a Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight that left Dhaka around 8pm. Earlier, Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) authorities handed over Binisha’s body to him around 11am.

Dilli Prasad Acharya, second secretary at the Nepalese embassy in Dhaka, said they reached out to DMP after speaking to Narendra who held firm belief that there could be unknown reasons behind his sister’s untimely death. “That is why we have written to the Dhaka Metropolitan Police requesting further probe,” Acharya said. Meanwhile, DMP Deputy Commissioner (Media and Public Relations) Masudur Rahman said they were giving the foreign student’s death investigation high priority.
