Girl commits suicide in school

The school-going daughter of former film actor Wasim committed suicide at her schoolyard in the city's Gulshan area yesterday.

Police said Bushra Ahmed, 14, a student of class eight of Manarat International School and College, jumped off the fifth floor of her school building at about 12:00noon yesterday and died on the spot.

Quoting the school authorities, Gulshan police said Bushra was caught by her teachers while she was copying in the examination yesterday. The teachers then seized her answer script and took her to the examination controller's room.

When the school authorities were about to call her guardians up, Bushra sought time for going to fresh-room. From there, she ran straight to the fifth floor and jumped off, said the police.

An unnatural death case has been filed with the Gulshan Police Station.
