Tigers’ defeat claims two livesStaff Correspondent
A young cricket fan reportedly committed suicide at his residence after watching the Asia Cup cricket’s final match that Bangladesh had lost to Pakistan on Thursday night.
His family said he might have committed suicide after failing to stand the shock of watching Bangladesh’s defeat.
Another man died of a heart attack in Panchagarh after Pakistan defeated the hosts by two runs in the final match.
In Dhaka, family members found the body of Rakib Hossain Rocky, 18, hanging from the ceiling at their Dakkhin Goran house at about 11:00pm
soon after the Asia Cup final was over.
He was brought dead to Dhaka Medical College Hospital at about 12:30am Friday, the hospital sources said.
Rakib’s father Momin Miah said that his son was watching the match on TV. As soon as Bangladesh was defeated by Pakistan, he went to his room with a heavy heart.
‘We found the body hanging from the ceiling and we took him to hospital,’ Momin Miah said.
Momin said he suspected that his son, an unemployed youth, had committed suicide after failing to stand the shock of Bangladesh’s defeat.
The family also said Rakib was a peon of Dhaka Bank and he had stopped going to his work after meeting a traffic accident about three months ago.
In Panchagarh, Azizul Islam, a petty trader, suffered a fatal heart attack soon after Bangladesh had lost the final match to Pakistan by two runs.
Aziz fell unconscious in front of the television set and died before he was taken to the hospital, the family members said.
Azizul was a resident of Jalashipara village of Panchagarh sadar upazila.
