Police have recovered a child domestic help’s dead body from a house at Uttara area in Dhaka. Locals have been demonstrating in front of the building, alleging she was killed.

The body of a 12-year-old named Baishakhi was recovered on Tuesday around 12pm and sent to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) morgue for autopsy.

Uttara West police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Delwar Hossain told the Dhaka Tribune that the girl worked at the house of one Rifat Ferdousi, who lives with his wife and child.

Police rushed to the spot after Rifat informed the police. Later, police broke down the door of a room and found the girl hanging from a window grill, he added.

“As it was a holiday they woke up late,” SI Delwar said, citing Rifat and his wife. “They found the door locked and that the domestic help was nowhere to be found. They called her several times but did not receive a response, so the homeowner contacted police.”

Baishakhi’s relatives rushed to the scene when they were told of her death and claimed she had been killed.

Locals began to protest, placing various stray things in front of the home, and setting them on fire. Cycles and furniture on the ground floor were taken and torched.

At one point the protesters began flinging brickbats at the building. 

Police official Delwar said that the allegations of Baishakhi's relatives will be investigated.

Further decisions will be taken after a post-mortem examination, he added.
