Indian student found dead in Chittagong Bangladesh
An Indian student has been found dead and another was found to be injured in a flat in Bangladesh’s Chittagong’s city.
He was identified as Ateef Sheikh, 25, a final year MBBS student of the University of Science and Technology Chittagong (USTC), said Alamgir Hossain, Officer-in-Charge of the Akbar Shah Police Station.
Ateef’s roommate Winson Maisnam Singh, 23, was also found hanging from a ceiling fan at the same flat in Akbar Shah locality, the police said. Both men hailed from India’s northeastern Manipur state.
They were taken to USTC hospital and later to Chittagong Medical College Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead, the report said. Singh was rescued by other roommates when he tried to hang himself. Police suspect Singh stabbed Sheikh and then tried to hang himself.
Other than the two, two others, including a woman student of the same university, stayed in the building, according to the police. Another student Neeraj Guru, who shared the same flat with Sheikh and Singh, said that both men were drinking alcohol in their rooms and soon he heard noises from their room and tried to open the door which was locked from inside. After he managed to open the door, Guru found Sheikh in a pool of blood and Singh hanging from a fan.
Then their neighbours helped Guru bring the two men to the hospital, said a police official.
