A Narsingdi woman dies at DMCH, with 12% burns on her body from an attack 13 days ago

A 22-year-old college student, Phulon Barman,who was set on fire by assailants in Narsingdi, died in Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), 13 days after the attack.

On June 13, she was attacked on her way home from a nearby store. She was taken to Narsingdi Sadar Hospital, and later to the burn unit of DMCH, with 12% burns on her body.

She died receiving treatment at the DMCH burn unit, around 6:30am yesterday, Sub-Inspector (SI) Bacchu Miah of the DMCH police outpost confirmed to Dhaka Tribune.

He said Phulon’s body has been kept at the DMCH morgue for autopsy.

This comes hot on the heels after Nusrat Jahan Rafi, an Alim examinee and student of Sonagazi Islamia Fazil (Degree) Madrasa, died on April 10 from severe burn injuries four days after supporters of the now suspended madrasa principal, Sirajuddaula, set her on fire on the madrasa premises.

Phulon was a resident of Narsingdi’s Birpur area, who passed her HSC examinations last year and had not yet enrolled in a university.

A day after the attack, Phulon’s father filed a case with Narsingdi Model police station, after which police  arrested several suspects in connection with the attack. On June 21, one of the suspects, Raju Sutradhar, confessed to a Narsingdi court.
