DU student found dead at in-laws’ passed MA with distinction

Sumaiya Khatun, a meritorious student of the Department of Islamic Studies at Dhaka University, who was allegedly murdered by her husband in Natore, had passed her Masters (MA) examination with distinction.

A talented student, Sumaiya had worked hard for her grades, aspiring to become a teacher in the future.

Sumaiya's mother Nuzhat Sultana and her younger brother Salahuddin broke down in tears after the results were released.

Sumaiya passed with a CGPA of 3.44 out of 4, Chairman of the Department D Shamsul Alam told The Daily over phone today.

He said the 26-year-old was a very talented student and her death had sent shockwaves among the teachers.

Alam further said that he has talked to the superintendent of Police and the civil surgeon of Natore so that Sumaiya's family gets justice.

Earlier on Sunday, Sumaiya Khatun was admitted to Natore Sadar Hospital after "falling ill". Her mother went to the hospital only to find her daughter's body in a morgue.

Resident Medical Officer of the hospital Aminul Islam said they found bruises on the body and signs of strangulation.

Sumaiya's mother then filed a murder case against Sumaiya's husband, father-in-law, mother-in-law and sister-in-law with Natore Sadar Police Station on Monday night.

Police later arrested Sumaiya's mother-in-law Syeda Maleka and sister-in-law Jui Khatun and sent them to jail through a court.

Sumaiya's husband diploma engineer Mostaq Hossain and father-in-law Zakir Hossain have been absconding since the incident.

Natore Superintendent of Police Liton Kumar Saha said police were conducting raids at various places to arrest Mostaq and Zakir.
