Fardin Iftekhar Dihan had been in a relationship with Anushka Noor Amin, an ‘O’ level student of Mastermind School in Dhanmondi, for two months.
Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s (DMP) Ramna Division DC Sajjadur Rahman, said this at a press conference.“Using social media and information technology it was known that they had been in a relationship for two months. However, the matter is still under investigation. The age of the deceased has been initially recorded based on the age given by the hospital,” the police officer said.
Meanwhile, in an email message Dihan’s mother claimed, “Dihan called Anushka at home to spend time alone, not for the purpose of rape. I was shocked by the incident and I demand a fair trial.”
Anushka was buried at Gopalpur Central Graveyard of Kushtia Sadar Police Station on Saturday morning. Relatives and villagers protested and rallied demanding justice for Anushka’s murder. They demanded the execution of anyone involved in the killings.
Earlier on Thursday, Anushka died at a house in Kalabagan in the capital. The victim’s father Md Al Amin filed a case with Kalabagan police station. Later, police arrested Dihan who made a confessional statement in the court on Friday.
