A Dhaka court placed Abdur Rahman Saikat, alleged boyfriend of Stamford University Honors 1st year student Rubaiyat Sharmin Rumpa whose body was found in Dhaka on Wednesday night, on a 4-day remand on Sunday, hours after he was arrested in the murder case.

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

Investigation officer (IO) and detective branch (DB) inspector Shah Md Akteruzzaman Elias in his plea said they have got evidence that Saikat, 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 Saikat, without any logical reason requested Rumpa to make a breakup, which led to an argument between them. I suspect after that incident Saikat 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.

Police recovered the body of Rumpa on Wednesday night 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.
