A young model and mom committed suicide while on a video call with her husband.
Risila Binte, 22, hanged herself on Monday while her four-year-old daughter was away at her grandparents’ house. Her husband quickly alerted her family and they arrived at her home at 2 p.m. on the same day to find her hanging in her room, unresponsive. Binte was rushed to a hospital in Dhaka, Bangladeshi but was pronounced dead on arrival.
A ramp fashion model since 2012, Binte was a busy mom who cared for her young daughter while pursuing her undergraduate degree in English literature at Atish Dipankar University of Science and Technology.
A post-mortem examination is being carried out to find out the exact circumstances of her death. While the reason for the suicide is still unknown, it is believed Risila was suffering problems with her marriage, police told the India Times.
