A medical student from India was allegedly stabbed to death by his compatriot who then tried to commit suicide at their flat in Bangladesh's northeastern port city of Chittagong, police said yesterday.
Ateef Sheikh died after being stabbed by Winson Maisnam Singh, 23, the police said. Sheikh, a final year student of the private University of Science and Technology Chittagong, was rushed to USTC hospital and later to Chittagong Medical College Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.
Singh was rescued by other roommates when he tried to hang himself. "Four Indian medical students rented the apartment. One of them killed a fellow student and then attempted suicide," a police officer said.
The four students hailed from Manipur, they said, adding that it appeared to be an incident of murder as a sequel of altercations between Singh and Sheikh.
Police said there were several wounds from a sharp weapon on Sheikh's body.
Singh was being treated at the facility but his cond-ition was critical, CMCH doctors said.
