Dejected at the regular eve-teasing by local wayward boys, a housemaid reportedly committed suicide in the city’s Kadamtoli area early Wednesday.
Shova Akhter, 16, daughter of Sohrab Hossain, a domestic help at a house in East Jurain, area used to be disturbed by local spoiled youths on her way back home at Mistir Dokan Goli every night, said SI Mohidur of Kadamtoli Police Station quoting her family members.
Like other days, the stalkers harassed the girl while returning home at about 10:30 pm on Wednesday. Humiliated, Shova tried to commit suicide after hanging herself from the ceiling of her room at midnight.
Later, her family members took her to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where doctors pronounced her dead at about 4:30 am, SI Mohidur added.
Victim’s father, Sohrab, filed a case with the police station against eight people for harassing Shova that prompted her to commit suicide.
Meanwhile, police detained one person for interrogation, said Mostafizur Rahman, officer-in-Charge of Kadamtoli Police Station.
