Female model 'commits suicide over family feud'
A female model allegedly committed suicide over a family feud in the capital's Mohakhali yesterday.
Soheli Rahman Nitti, 28, daughter of retired
superintendent of police Motiur Rahman, hang herself from a ceiling fan in her residence following an altercation with her husband, said Sridham Chandra Roy, sub-inspector of Banani police, quoting her husband Abhijit Bachhi.
Abhijit took her unconscious body to Mohakhali's Metropolitan Hospital where the on-duty doctors declared her dead at 2:45am, added the SI.
However, locals saw Abhijit beating Nitti after entering their house, witnesses told the police.
According to her father Motiur, as her first marriage did not work out, she married Abhijit without family consent. Two days back Nitti told her father that she was in an abusive marriage and was often beaten by Abhijit, but Motiur took no heed of the matter at that time.
Police detained Abhijit for quizzing and the deceased's body was sent to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for an autopsy, said the SI.
Motiur said he would file a case against Abhijit.
