Doc plunges to his death in city
A doctor died after he fell from the balcony of a hotel on the capital's Topkhana Road last night.
The deceased was identified as Rashidul Islam Ujjal, 32, an intern of Khulna Medical College Hospital.
Police said Ujjal died on the spot. They suspect he fell from one of the balconies between 7th and 9th floors of Hotel Metropolitan Ltd around 8:00pm.
On information, police recovered the body and sent it to Dhaka Medical College morgue for autopsy.
"His name was not registered as a boarder at the hotel and the hotel authorities did not have any information about why or which boarder Ujjal came to visit," Mansur Alam, receptionist of the hotel, told The Daily Star.
Kazi Mohammad Ayub Hossain, uncle of Ujjal, claimed that Ujjal was suffering from mental disorder. "But we are not sure whether he killed himself," he said.
"Ujjal came to Dhaka from Khulna yesterday morning without telling anyone," he added.
Rezaul Karim, officer-in-charge of Shahbagh Police Station, said they are investigating the matter.
