Bangladesh police report text messages found Raudha Athif’s mobile phone show she fought with her boyfriend the night before her death.
A Bangladeshi officer reported anonymously to Bangadesh newspaper, The Daily Star, that the police found messages exchanged between Raudha and her boyfriend of the social messenger app “WhatsApp”, which showed the two spend a long time conversing on the night of March 28 – the night before she was found dead in her dorm room at Islami Bank Medical College in Rajshahi, Bangladesh.
The officer said the conversation showed Raudha had been displeased and frustrated with her boyfriend.
Raudha was a young Maldivian medical student well known for her part-time modelling career.
She was reported to have been found hanging from the ceiling phone of her dorm room Islami Bank Medical College in Rajshahi, Bangladesh, by a fellow student on March 29, just before noon.
Assistant Commissioner of Police, Detective Branch, Rajshahi Metropolitan Police, Alamin Hussain said only that conversations made from Raudha’s phone are to be further examined.
Raudha’s father reported to Bangladeshi newspaper, Daily Star that he had been shown part of the messages and that it proved nothing other than that Raudha had been displeased about something.
“There was nothing abnormal. The conversation proves that Raudha was frustrated and angry. I'm sure my daughter was strong and capable enough to hold her nerves,” said Mohamed Athif, Raudha’s father.
Raudha's phone was unlocked by a team of Maldivian police officers who traveled to Bangladesh amid allegations of incompetence by the family against Bangladeshi officers investigating the case.
