Interpol to investigate Maldivian model Raudha murder

The International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) is going to investigate the mysterious death of Raudha Athif, Maldivian model and student of Islami Bank Medical College, Rajshahi.

The international police body has already sought reports of Raudha’s post-mortem, viscera and findings of the investigation from the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) of Bangladesh.

PBI deputy inspector general Banaj Kumar Muzumder confirmed this to newsmen.

Banaj Kumar said PBI has received a letter through foreign ministry and Interpol desk of Bangladesh police headquarters to send to details of Raudha murder.

The PBI authorities has already asked its Rajshahi office to send the findings of the murder.

The Maldives also sought information from Bangladesh on investigation into the murder.

Raudha was a second year student of Islami Bank Medical College in Rajshahi. Police recovered the dead body of model Raudha from the college’s hostel room on March 29, 2017.

Different law enforcing bodies, including Shah Makhdum Police Station, Detective Branch (DB) and Criminal Investigation Department (CID), carried out investigation and came up with reports of suicide.

Raudha’s father Mohammad Athif, a physician and now a politician in Maldives, claimed that his daughter was murdered rejecting all findings.

A Rajshahi court ordered the PBI to investigate into the case following Mohammad Athif’s appeal in December 2017.
