Tahmina Shabnam, mother of Jagannath University student Fairuz Abantika, who died by suicide on Friday night, has demanded justice for her daughter’s death.

 My husband died a year ago. On Friday night, my daughter, Fairuz, died. I can't bear this grief. I have another son. If no action is taken against those responsible for my daughter's death, I will end my life along with my son,” said the wailing mother at her home in Bagichagaon, Comilla City, on Saturday.

 “My daughter was very ambitious. My daughter was brilliant, was that her crime? She was first in her session, is that her crime? She got selected as a GD (General Duty) pilot, is that her crime? I informed the proctor and the chairman about the matter. I didn't get any justice. If I don't get justice, I will finish myself. I have nothing,” she said.

Fairuz Abantika, a student of the Law Department at Jagannath University and daughter of the late Jamal Uddin, a former professor of Comilla Government College, was found hanging from the ceiling fan of her house in Bagichagaon on Friday night.

She was taken to Comilla General Hospital, where the on-duty doctor declared her dead at 10:15pm.

Earlier, she made a post on Facebook in which she accused her university’s assistant proctor and a classmate of her suicide.

The news of Fairuz’s death sparked protests at Jagannath University. Besides, a human chain is underway at Kandirpar in Comilla City, demanding that the culprits be brought under the law.

Her body will be handed over to her family after an autopsy at 2pm, her namaz-e-janaza will be held after Asar prayers.
