A policeman died after falling off a building in Dhaka’s Shahbagh area this morning.
The deceased was identified as Sudhangsu Kumar Biswas, 26, hailing from Jhenaidah, who joined police service as a constable in 2015.
Police suspected that he might have killed himself after jumping off the third floor of an eight-storey building at the Central Command and Control Centre of police.
Sazzadur Rahman, deputy commissioner (Ramna Division) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said police are investigating whether it was a case of suicide or accident.
The constable sustained severe injuries after falling off the building around 10:00am. He was taken to Rajarbagh Police Lines Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries, the official said.
The body of the victim was sent to Dhaka Medical College morgue for autopsy this afternoon.
Deceased’s cousin Pintu Sarker said Sudhangsu married a woman three years back but his wife went to her parents’ house following family feud.
He might have committed suicide, Pintu told reporters at DMCH.
