The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court of Rajshahi, Bangladesh has ordered a strict probe into Maldivian medical student and model Raudha Athif who was found dead in her hostel at Islami Bank Medical College and Hospital.

The verdict was reached by court when her family declined to accept the result of the autopsy report which police concluded as ‘suicide’.

The family believes that Raudha was strangled to death.

Father of Raudha, Dr Mohamed Athif said that the court came to the decision after looking into the evidences brought up by the lawyers.

“Our lawyers have presented evidence which supports that she was strangled to death. There were marks on her neck as well,” commented Dr Athif while speaking to Mihaaru.

He added that the court also ordered police to submit the documents of the case after a full investigation.

Meanwhile, Raudha’s family has accused Bangladesh Police of neglecting the investigation into Raudha’s death.

Raudha Athif, 20, was found hanged in her hostel in Bangladesh on March 29.

It is noteworthy that an official of the Bangladesh Detective Branch told the Daily Star new that after unlocking Raudha’s mobile phone, it was found that she had a long chat with her lover on the eve of her death, upset over his behaviour.
