Police recovered the body in Siddheshwari, Dhaka on Wednesday night

Police have yet to confirm the cause of death of a police inspector's daughter whose body was found in Dhaka's Siddheshwari area on Wednesday night.

The deceased, Rubaiyat Sharmin Rumpa, 21, is the daughter of Inspector Md Rokonuddin, in-charge of a police outpost in Habiganj. She was a student of English department in Stamford University in Dhaka.   

She lived with her mother and younger brother in the city's Shantibagh area. 

Police primarily suspect that she died after falling from a multistorey building in Siddheshwari.

"Upon receiving information from the locals, police recovered the body from an alley behind Ayesha Complex around 11pm on Wednesday," said Deputy Commissioner Sazzadur Rahman (Ramna division) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP).  

Police sources said Rumpa left home around 8pm on Wednesday. 

Her family identified her body on Thursday, said Ramna police station Inspector (Investigation) Jahirul Islam.

The autopsy of the body was performed at Dhaka Medical College (DMC) on Thursday.

Dr Sohel Mahmud, head of the DMC Forensic Department, said: "The deceased sustained multiple fractures in her body which indicates she died after falling off a multistorey building.

"Samples have also been collected to perform viscera test," he added.

Inspector Jahirul Islam said police were investigating the death.
