Girl student commits suicide at CRP

A student of Bangladesh Health Profession Institute yesterday set herself on fire at her dormitory room of Centre for Rehabilitation for Paralysed (CRP) in Savar after she was expelled from examination for adopting unfair means.
Sabiha Tahrina, 19, a first year student of occupational therapy at Bangladesh Health Profession in CRP, died on the spot. She was the daughter of Abdur Razzak, a sub-assistant engineer of TNT in Rangpur.
Sub-inspector (SI) Azizur Rahman of Savar Police Station told The Daily Star that hostel authorities found Sabiha dead when they broke into her room around 11:00am.
The SI said Sabiha was expelled for adopting unfair means in yesterday's exam held at the institution in CRP compound. She was appearing for the first-year final exam and used to live in the women's hostel, he added.
CRP sources said she returned to the hostel around 10:30am following the incident at the exam hall. A few minutes later, inmates of the adjacent rooms on the second floor noticed smoke coming out of her room.
The inmates peeped into the room and with sheer horror they witnessed Sabiha burning alive, said the sources.
Police, later, sent the body to Dhaka Medical College Hospital morgue for autopsy.
