With this, death toll around the country due to Eve-teasing reached to 19. The victim, a 1st-year student of Rajshahi College, had been irritated by her 24-year-old neighbor Zakir for several months, according to her family sources.

Yesterday while she was on her way to college, Himel along with some of his friends blocked her way and made suggestive remarks. As she protested they pulled her scarf off and slapped her in the face. No one around dared to come and help her from fear of teasers. Mou could not tolerate such insult and so return home she committed suicide with her scarf tied to the ceiling fan in her room. When the news of her suicide came out, all the students and teachers of the colleges of the town came out on the roads. They formed a long human chain from Shashan Gacha to Mughaltoli in protest of Eve-teasing.
