A youth allegedly committed suicide jumping from the rooftop of the eight-storey building of Dhaka district court in the capital yesterday.
Saidul Morsalin, 26, son of an advocate of the court Sirazul Islam, was declared dead at Mitford Hospital.
Saidul fell on the ground after hitting three advocates who were present on the court premises during the incident around 11:00am.
The injured advocates — Aktar jahan Tara, Saiful Islam Chowdhury Kamal and Mamunur Rashid — were taken to a nearby clinic.
Police suspected that Saidul has killed himself due to ‘family problems’.
Sub-inspector Rakibul Haq of Kotwali Police Station said they found a ‘suicide note’ in his pocket, in which he blamed his parents and uncle for his decision to commit suicide.
The SI quoted the chit as saying, “Some people disturbed me, but you didn’t care. So I am committing suicide.”
Saidul’s father Sirajul suspected that criminals killed his son and threw the body from the roof of the building. Saidul was missing since he left home Monday night, he said.
Police sent the body to Sir Salimullah Medical College morgue for autopsy. The morgue sources said the victim died after falling on ground.
Asked about the suicide note, Sirazul said he heard about the note but did not believe his son could write it. There was no family problem, for which Saidul could commit suicide, he said.
No case was lodged in this connection till filing of this report at 5:30pm.
