Schoolgirl 'kills self'

A schoolgirl of fifth grade in Tangail's Madhupur upazila is believed to have died by suicide early yesterday over her demand for a dress on the occasion of Pahela Baishakh, being celebrated in the country today.

The deceased was Hashi Akter, 13, daughter of farmer Haider Ali, of Chak Gangair village. 

Abdul Hamid, uncle of the girl, said although her parents had assured her that they would buy her a dress yesterday morning, the girl apparently hanged herself with a scarf from the ceiling.

Madhupur Police Station OC Shafiqul Islam said the body was sent to Tangail General Hospital for autopsy.
