Teen pushed off rooftop by ‘friends’, dies

A teenage boy died as he was pushed down from the rooftop of a building allegedly by two of his friends early yesterday. The deceased was identified as Jisan, 14, son of Abul Kalam. Hailing from Shibchar upazila of Madaripur district, Kalam was living at Kaliganj Koibartyapra here with his family. Victim's mother Hazera Khatun claimed that Jisan's friends Sifat and Shakil called him out of their house at dead of night and took him to the rooftop of a six-storey building in the area.

Later, they pushed him off the rooftop, she said. The teenager was taken to Sir Salimullah Medical College and Mitford Hospital in the capital where doctors declared him dead.

On information, police recovered the body and sent it to the hospital morgue for autopsy, said sub-inspector Obaidul Haque of South Keraniganj Police Station.
