Maldivian Fashion Model Raudha Athif was found dead earlier this morning in what looked like a set up to be a suicide in her hostel dorm room.
She was a student studying in Bangladesh. He has been featured in such reputable publications like The Vogue.
It is very important to note that Bangladesh has seen a lot of Islamists attacks and many people have been killed in the last year or so. The modus operandi of such attacks has always been either blatant hacking to death or staging a suicide.
While we don’t know the details of the events surrounding her death, I refuse to accept that she killed herself. She was known to be a happy person with a bright future and career ahead of her.
There was no indication that she was depressed or anything like that. She even posted as usual on her Instagram yesterday and the day before as regular. As someone who has almost 30 thousand Instagram followers, her posts spoke of someone who is quite happy with her life. (https://www.instagram.com/raudhaathif)
I feel it is my responsibility to call for an investigation into her her death which is suspiciously looking like murder. And I hope those who committed the crime will be brought to justice.
It is important to note that the person who posted about the news on Facebook has now deleted the post. And I question his ending of the announcement. Why does she need to be forgiven? This person would be a good place to start the investigation.
Her mobile phone would be important for this investigation as she would have received threats or something like that.
This is not OK. And we must not ever be ok with this.
