A 19-year-old girl has committed suicide in her home at Shivalaya upazila in Manikganj, reportedly over a romantic rejection.
The deceased, Sabrina Aktar Bonna, daughter of one Abdul Momen, was a first year honours student of Government Debendra College in the district.
Police recovered the body and sent it to Manikganj Sadar Hospital morgue for an autopsy.
When contacted, Monirul Islam, officer-in-charge of Shivalaya police station, said: “The girl hanged herself from the ceiling of her room around 10am.”
Sabrina's uncle Farhad Hossain told the Dhaka Tribune that a boy named Limon had rejected Sabrina’s romantic advances recently and the family believes this may be the cause of the suicide.
No one has been detained in this connection.
