18 Year Old Girl Commits Suicide In WB, Family Holds Tuition Teacher Sheikh Imran Responsible –

An 18 year old girl, named Rakhi Saha, committed suicide on 2nd August in Dharmutola area of ​​Manmad Manikchak Thana, Malda, West Bengal.  Rakhi was a 12th grade student in Mathura BSS High School.

The family is holding her tuition teacher, Sheikh Imran, reponsible for this extreme step. It seems that Rakhi had already told her family that Imran had made a love proposal to her and was continuously pressurizing her to marry him.  Her family filed a police complaint and the teacher was finally arrested. The news has been covered by Bengali media.


On the afternoon of 2nd August, teacher Imran called Rakhi for tuition. There was no other student present in the class. After returning from tuition, Rakhi hanged herself in her house. It is unfortunate that the family was still sending her to Sheikh Imran for tuition after she told them about his intentions. The family says she was a bright student and they could not figure out that she could take such an extreme step. Malda district is a Muslim majority region and notorious for Love Jihad and related news.
