BANGLADESH - A youth stabbed himself in the abdomen after stabbing to death a teenage schoolgirl storming her residence in Tongi yesterday evening.

Deceased Nasrin Sultana, 14, was a student of class VIII of Shamsuddin Memorial School at Morkun in the town, while the youth was identified as Omar Faruk, 24. He has been stalking Nasrin for one year, Nasrin's relatives alleged.

Witnesses said Faruk stormed Nasrin's house around 6:00pm in the absence of her parents and started stabbing her shutting the door. After receiving the first stab, Nasrin managed to open the door and tried to come out of the house, but Faruk continued stabbing her.

"When locals approached the house, Faruk stabbed once in his abdomen. People then caught him and gave a good beating before handing over to police," Mamun, a neighbour, said.

Later, they rushed Nasrin to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) where doctors declared her dead at around 8:00pm.

Police took Faruk to DMCH. His condition was critical.

Nasrin's maternal uncle Abul Hossain Bhasani alleged that Faruk has been stalking Nasrin for one year, and three months ago he pressurised Nasrin to give one of her photographs to him.

"He had also threatened to abduct her," Abul added.

Faruk is an employee of a cigarette factory in the area and comes from Gouripur in Mymensingh.

Tapan Kumar Saha, officer-in-charge of Tongi Police Station, said they have yet to ascertain the reason behind incident. No case was filed.
