DU student dies after falling from Hall roof

24 November 2022

DU Correspondent :
A Dhaka University (DU) student died after falling from the rooftop of a residential building of Jagannath Hall on the university.
The incident took place at Santosh Chandra Dav building of the Hall around 9:30 am on Wednesday.
It is still not clear whether it is a suicide or an accident.
The deceased was identified as Limon Kumar Roy (23), hailed from Rangpur District. He was a third-year student of the Education and Research Institute (IER) of the university.
The fellow students took him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where the on-duty doctor declared him dead.
Inspector Bachchu Miah, in-charge of DMCH police camp, confirmed the matter.
"We, eight students live in the room. Limon was a very cheerful boy. He used to stay in the reading room most of the time," Chanchal Chandra Debnath, one of Limon's roommates, said.
Referring to the conversation with Limon at last night, he said, "Limon was reading last night in the room when he said, 'I don't remember what I read. Reading one side, forgetting another'.
"I woke up at 8:30 yesterday in the morning, while he was lying in his bed scrolling the phone. I asked him, about his examination? Limon said, 'He will go saying that he don't remember anything'. Later after coming to my class, I heard that he had died," Limon's roommate said.
Jagannath Hall Provost Prof Dr Mihir Lal Saha said, "A student named Limon fell from the building around 10 am.  Hearing the sound, some students of the hall took him to the hospital where doctors declared him dead."
"A team of us visited the place where the accident happened. What happened there is still unclear. We have sent the dead body for post-mortem, we are trying to hand over the body quickly after completing post mortem," Shahbagh Police Station Sub-inspector Mahfuzur Rahmann said.
