A Dhaka court has placed Abdur Rahman Saikat, a friend of Rubaiyat Sharmin Rumpa, on a four-day remand to quiz him over the death of the Stamford University student.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mamunur Rashid passed the order as police produced Soikot before the court and pleaded to place him on 7-day remand.

Investigation officer (IO) and detective branch (DB) inspector Shah Md Akteruzzaman Elias in his plea said they have got evidence that Soikot, a BBA student of the same varsity, and Rumpa had relations, which turned sour lately.

“Both of them were seen together on December 4 and Soikot, without any logical reason requested Rumpa to make a breakup, which led to an argument between them. I suspect after that incident Soikot with the help from his accomplices murdered Rumpa and threw her body from building no 64/4 on Siddheswari Circular Road at around 10.45 pm on the day,” the IO said in his bail plea.

Detectives Branch of police took Saikat in their custody for interrogation on Saturday but he was shown arrested on Sunday.

Police recovered the body of Rumpa on the night of December 4 from an alleyway in Siddheswari area in the capital and sent it to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) for autopsy. Her family later identified her in the hospital.
