CHATTOGRAM, Jan 31, 2019 (BSS) – A doctor of Chattogram Medical College Hospital (CMCH) is said to have committed suicide following a family feud in Chandgaon Residential Area under Chandgaon Thana in the city early Thursday.

Abul Bashar, officer-in-charge of Chandgaon Thana, said Akash completed MBBS from CMCH and tied the knot with Tanjila Chowdhury Mitu, an expatriate Bangladeshi residing in the US, in 2016. He also conducted a coaching centre named ‘Three Doctors’ at Panchlaish Thana in the city, he added.

Suspecting illicit relationship of Tanjila, Akash recently had altercation with his wife. Newaz Morshed, younger brother of the deceased said before Akash’s apparent suicide, Akash had shared photos of his wife on his Facebook profile and wrote about her alleged extramarital affair before announcing his decision to commit suicide.

According to his final Facebook status, the couple tied the knot in 2016.
