A minor girl allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the 9th floor of their residence in the city’s Gulshan neighbourhood early on Saturday.
The deceased is identified as Sana Rezwan, a sixth-grader of Sunbeams School in Uttara. She is the daughter of Rezwan Selim, an apparel businessman.
Abul Hasan, officer-in-charge (OC) of Gulshan Police Station, said family members told police that she jumped from the railing of the staircase at about 2:30 am after arguing with her parents.
“We’re not sure whether she committed suicide or there is anything else behind her death. We’ve collected evidence from the spot. We’re looking into the matter. And the autopsy report will ascertain the exact cause of the death,” he said.
