An Indian student named Asif Sheth was found dead on Friday in an apartment house in Khulshi area of Bangladesh’s port city of Chittagong, and the police suspect that he may be murdered by another Indian student named Winson.
The police said that Asif Sheth was a student of USTC (University of Science and Technology, Chittagong). However, still the department in which he studying is unidentified.
According to media reports, Nayek Hamidur Rahman of the outpost of Chittagong Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) told Police that around 1:00 am an Indian student named Niraz brought his 2 classmates to the hospital in critical condition. Asif was declared brought dead by on duty doctor and Winson is being treated at the hospital.
Khulshi police station’s sub-inspector Jasim Uddin told that the deceased student is a resident of Manipur state in India.
Jasim suspected that Asif and Winson were living in the same room and two could have been fighting which caused this incident.
The matter came to light after Niraz who heard their shouting and went to check on them, found their door locked from the inside.
Niraz broke the door and upon coming into the room found Asif’s body hanging from the ceiling fan and Winson lying in a pool of blood. He took them both to the CMC Hospital with the assitance of his wife.
The police believe the two friends fought with each other and Asif harmed Winson, who killed the former and then hanged the body from the ceiling fan. The police are waiting for the post mortem report to confirm the cause of the murder.
