Last night, a student at Shaheen School and College in Uttara was killed after arriving at the hostel for classes following a one-and-half year closure due to Covid-19 pandemic.

The victim was identified as Abir Hossain Kan, a 10th-grader from Nawabganj Upazila in Dhaka.

According to school authorities, his body was found hanging from the window grill in room 701 at night. It is believed that he committed suicide. However, the family of the deceased demanded an impartial investigation into their son's death.

Abir's father drove him to the hostel that afternoon. The boy, who was with his father, went to the hostel in the afternoon. He asked the maid at the hostel to give him a phone number so he could talk to his parents. She refused. In the inquest report on the body, Sub-inspector Lal Mia from Uttara Paschim Police Station wrote that he told her to call his parents and ask them to take the body.

The teacher was informed by the woman who ran to them. They raced to his room, where they saw his body hanging from a window. He was taken immediately to Uttara Adhunik Hospital, where doctors declared him dead. The SI quoted the hostel authorities.

The SI stated that the body had no signs of injury, except for marks around the throat.

Fazlur Rahman Khan, the father of the deceased, said that his son was normal in his behavior when he went with him to the hostel.

The school authorities called the father at night and informed him that his son was unconscious. He was then taken to hospital by his father, who found his son dead.

Fazlur stated that his son couldn't have committed suicide.

Bakul Mia, the school's director, stated that they found the body of the boy hanging after the maid told them what the boy had said.

He stated that they didn't know the cause of his passing.

The body was found by police at a private hospital and taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital morgue for autopsy.
