Police are yet find the cause of death of the young woman whose body was found in Dhaka’s Siddheshwari-Malibagh area on Wednesday night.

Rubaiya’s father Rokon Uddin is a police official posted in Habiganj, he said.

Locals suspect the woman died after falling from a building, as they heard a sound before finding the body on the street, OC Monirul added.
