Police have recovered the body of a housemaid from Uttara’s Azampur Sector-7 area in Dhaka.

The body was recovered on Thursday.

Police stated that Tanjin, 15, from Sunamganj district, committed suicide by jumping off the roof of a nine-storied building.

She worked as a maid in the house of celebrity couple Bijori Barkatullah and Intekhab Dinar.

Confirming the matter, Uttara West police station Sub-inspector (SI) Sukanto Saha said: "No one is allowed to go to the rooftop, but Tanjin somehow managed to go up there around 11:45 am and committed suicide."  

Several residents of neighbouring buildings said they saw Tanjin preparing to jump and tried to stop her. However, the teenager ignored all their calls and jumped off the roof.

Uttara West police station Officer In-charge (OC) Tapan Chandra Saha said: "We recovered the body in front of the building and sent it to Dhaka Medical College for autopsy."

"Primarily, we learnt that Tanjin was loved by everyone in the house, however, we need to investigate more to find out why she committed suicide," the OC added.
