Police on Saturday detained Jagannath University (JnU) student Fairuz Abontika's classmate Amman Siddique and Assistant Proctor Din Islam in connection with her death yesterday. 

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Habibur Rahman confirmed this to media. He said ''since the death of the student, these two were under police surveillance, they are now in police custody." 

Earlier this afternoon, the students of JnU staged a demonstration and presented a five-point demand with a 24-hour ultimatum over the arrest and permanent expulsion of Amman Siddique and Din Islam. 

On Friday night, (March 15) around 10 pm, Fairuz first posted about her committing suicide post on Facebook. Then she committed suicide by hanging herself. Later she was immediately rescued and taken to the district headquarters hospital. The doctors at the hospital said that she was no more.

In the Facebook post, Abantika mentioned that her classmate Amman Siddique of her same department and assistant proctor Deen Islam would be responsible for her suicide. 

In her Facebook post, Abantika wrote, 'If I ever die by suicide, my classmate Amman Siddiqui and assistant proctor Deen Islam, who supported him, will be solely responsible for my death. I complained to Proctor's office that Amman was threatening me offline and also online but I did not get any benefit. Deen Islam scares me in many ways for the sake of Amman. He said that expelling me is very easy for him. I know I won't get any justice here.”

In her post, she also mentions, "I am asking the vice-chancellor Sadeka Halim ma'am to judge it as the guardian of this institution.  And I am dying by hanging.''
